The spine specialists at the Weill Cornell Medicine Brain and Spine Center offer a complete range of surgical solutions, from the most advanced minimally invasive techniques, including lateral access surgery that dramatically shortens recovery time, to open complex reconstructive spine surgery for scoliosis and other spinal deformities.
Working out of the multidisciplinary Weill Cornell Medicine Center for Comprehensive Spine Care on East 59th Street, our neurosurgeons take a team approach that allows us to draw on expertise from neurology, neurosurgery, rehabilitation medicine, anesthesiology, and physical therapy. After assessing your case, the spine team will tailor a treatment plan that may include physical therapy, medication, interventional pain management, acupuncture, and movement therapies. When surgery is part of the plan, we offer the most advanced minimally invasive techniques, including lateral access surgery that dramatically shortens your recovery time. We offer on-site rehabilitation, led by physical therapists whose holistic spine rehabilitation includes therapeutic exercise, manual techniques, yoga, McKenzie technique, and pool therapy.
At Weill Cornell Medicine, patients receive a complete continuum of care, from diagnosis to treatment and recovery.
