Doctors Who Treat AT/RT

A patient with AT/RT should be treated by an interdisciplinary team that includes neurosurgeons, oncologists, radiologists, physical therapists, and other pediatric specialists with advanced training and extensive experience in children’s brain tumors. The pediatric neurosurgery service at the Weill Cornell Brain and Spine Center offers the services of two of the top surgeons in the field as well as access to a full range of specialists in all the disciplines a patient needs. Dr. Souweidane and Dr. Greenfield are not only the pediatric neurosurgeons at NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital, but also at Memorial Sloan-Kettering Hospital, which is just across the street from our facility here on the east side of New York.

Dr. Mark Souweidane, M.D. is vice chairman of the Weill Cornell Department of Neurological Surgery and director of the Weill Cornell Pediatric Brain and Spine Center, is internationally recognized as an expert in the field of pediatric neurosurgery, including pediatric brain tumors. He has been named one of America’s Top Doctors by Castle Connolly, and is regularly included on lists of the nation’s Best Doctors and Super Doctors. A pioneering champion of minimal access neurosurgery, Dr. Souweidane has specialized endoscopic surgical skills that attract patients and practitioners that benefit from his talents.
