Our Lower Manhattan Office

You are here

In addition to our two offices near the main campus of NewYork-Presbyterian/Weill Cornell Medical Center, the Weill Cornell Brain and Spine Center also maintains an office in lower Manhattan to serve the downtown communities. Staffed by four neurosurgeons with a wide range of advanced skills, this office brings the expertise of the Weill Cornell faculty to a convenient downtown location.

The office is located at:
156 William Street, 11th floor
New York, NY 10038

To make an appointment with a neurosurgeon practicing out of the lower Manhattan office, please contact the doctor directly.

Dr. Samuel Kim sees patients full time at the lower Manhattan office; he is a general neurosurgeon with expertise in spinal surgery, cardiovascular disorders, trauma, and brain tumors. Call 646-962-5115.

Three other neurosurgeons from our upper east side location will now offer patient appointments at the new facility, a great convenience to patients who live or work in lower Manhattan or Brooklyn:

Dr. Mark Souweidane, vice chairman of the department of neurosurgery at Weill Cornell and the director of the Weill Cornell Pediatric Brain and Spine Center, is a world-renowned pediatric neurosurgeon specializing in brain and spinal tumors, chiari malformations, colloid cysts, and craniofacial abnormalities.

Dr. Jared Knopman, neurosurgeon and interventional neuroradiologist, specializes in cerebrovascular disorders, including both the open surgical and minimally invasive endovascular treatment of aneurysms, AVMs, brain tumors, and carotid occlusive disease.

“The Weill Cornell Brain and Spine Center is already a leading provider of neurosurgical care on the upper east side of Manhattan,” says Dr. Stieg, “Now we’re able to bring our services to a diverse community of patients who live and work in lower Manhattan and have previously been under-served. It’s a major convenience for them, and a privilege for us, to have this new facility downtown.”
