About Us

At the Weill Cornell Medicine Brain and Spine Center, our top neurosurgeons treat the full spectrum of neurological disease, including brain and spine tumors, stroke, herniated disc and other spine disorders, aneurysms, epilepsy, and Parkinson's disease and other movement disorders.

Ranked #3 in the country, Weill Cornell Medicine’s Department of Neurological Surgery is proud to partner with NewYork-Presbyterian, ranked #6 in the nation and #1 in NYC by US News and World Report.

Consistently named to national and New York City lists of Top Doctors, Best Doctors, and Super Doctors, our neurosurgeons offer the latest in minimally invasive and endoscopic surgery for a wide range of brain and spine conditions in adults and children.

Our comprehensive, multi-disciplinary approach to patient care means we always offer the least invasive options first and recommend surgery only when necessary. Advanced programs include stereotactic radiosurgery, interventional neuroradiology, endoscopic surgery, image-guided surgical navigation, laser surgery, and microneurosurgery.

If you have advanced Parkinson’s disease and are experiencing dyskinesia symptoms or motor fluctuations that are not responding to medicines, you may be eligible for a clinical trial examining a new minimally invasive method to treat your symptoms.

What Our Patients Are Saying

EMMANUEL S.
Talking about Jared Knopman, M.D.

"I had suffered from Trigeminal Neuralgia and the pain it gave me was very severe. Dr. Knopman explained to me in terms I could understand the surgery required to help me. He performed the surgery and he and his crew had done an incredible job, and now I am cured. I am highly recommending Dr. Knopman to everyone I know. He was very kind and such a professional. Thank you!"
