Stereotactic Radiosurgery

The Stereotactic Radiosurgery Program at the Weill Cornell Brain and Spine Center offers the latest in advanced minimally invasive and non-invasive treatments for a wide range of conditions.

Conditions We Treat

Need a Second Opinion?

We understand how confusing and frightening it can be to get a diagnosis that requires neurosurgery.  Getting a second opinion is always a good idea — there are many advanced imaging techniques and minimally invasive procedures available today, and any patient would be wise to get a second opinion from another neurosurgeon.

Stroke Program

The Stroke Program at the Weill Cornell Medicine Brain and Spine Center is a leader in the treatment and prevention of stroke. Our multidisciplinary stroke team is comprised of endovascular neurosurgeons, interventional radiologists, stroke neurologists, and neurointensivists. Our neurosurgeons are internationally recognized experts in cerebrovascular conditions and have advanced training in the very latest minimally invasive procedures used to treat and prevent stroke.

Conditions We Treat

Clinical Research Fellowship in Interventional Neuroradiology (INR)

The Department of Neurosurgery at Weill Cornell Medical College offers a clinical research fellowship in Interventional neuroradiology (INR), a relatively new field that combines advanced three-dimensional imaging techniques with endoscopic surgical procedures. INR specialists are neurosurgeons with advanced training in radiology who perform minimally invasive endoscopic techniques using high-tech imaging equipment to guide their work.

Cognitive Remediation

Dr. Jessica Spat-Lemus and Amanda Sacks-Zimmerman

The comprehensive Cognitive Remediation Program focuses on improving working memory, attention, and focus. A new five-week version of the program includes personal consultation, telephone sessions, and online components designed to improve performance in a wide range of cognitive tasks.

Conditions We Treat

Topical Vancomycin for Craniotomies

This study has been designed as a single-blinded, multi-center, randomized clinical trial at New York Presbyterian Hospital Columbia and New York Presbyterian Hospital Cornell. The study population includes all adult craniotomies performed at each institution over a 4 year and 9 month time period. The treatment variable is the application of topical vancomycin to the surgical site. If a craniotomy is performed, a paste made from vancomycin powder and sterile solution will be applied to the edges and outer surface of the craniotomy.

Venous Sinus Stenting in Patients with Refractory Idiopathic Intracranial Hypertension (IIH)

There are many patients with Idiopathic Intracranial Hypertension (IIH), also known as pseudotumor cerebri, who do not respond to available treatments or experience medication-related side effects that affect their quality of life. A new clinical trial aims to evaluate the safety and efficacy of venous sinus stenting in patients with refractory IIH and significant venous sinus stenosis.
