Chief of Neurosurgery at the Weill Cornell Medicine Lower Manhattan Spine Center and NewYork-Presbyterian Lower Manhattan

Here's what patients say about Dr. Fu:

"Excellent surgeon. Got the job done. I had a cervical disc fusion back in October and so far no problems. I would definitely recommend him to anybody who needs a neurosurgeon."

"Great Surgeon/ Great personality/Great follow-up/.....Had spinal fusion to correct past procedures. Explained what and why surgery was necessary again. Also very attentive PA."

"I very much liked Dr. Fu. He did not try to talk me into anything, yet he explained the problems that I am having with my back. He was patient, courteous and I didn't feel like he was trying to rush me through my appointment. If I were to proceed with my case, I would definitely do it with Dr. Fu."

"I had back pain since 1976. I had traction, opioids, pain specialists, neuro stimulation, pain pump and numerous surgeries. I saw Dr Fu. Had surgery in May 2019. No pain. No medicine for pain."

Dr. Michael VirkMichael Virk, MD, PhD
Neurosurgeon, Weill Cornell Medicine Spine Center

Here's what patients say about Dr. Virk:

"Dr. Michael Virk is a great neurosurgeon. I had 2 surgeries with him. My spine and my Neck. He has great patience and is so easy to talk with, He explains everything To you, guides you through the recovery Process, and monitors the recovery improvement. I couldn’t ask for a better Doctor. I’m doing well 1 year Later. His staff and office are also pleasant as well."

"After my needed spine surgery, (which I wouldn't trust with anyone but Dr. Virk), and following all directives for successful healing, in my three week follow up visit I told Dr. Virk I am walking 2 miles a day and feel great. If it wasn't for the clear 5 star professionalism of Dr. Virk and his amazing staff, this would not be possible."

"There is a word that comes to my mind describing Dr. Virk! The word is SPECTACULAR! That tells you everything! Look no further, he will fix you! He is also a kind gentlemen, and he knows his stuff! His hands are golden, a spectacular surgeon and person, and he spends a lot of time with you at checkups. He is great at explaining everything he will do to correct your problem. I was in bed for 2 months with pain. After spinal fusion surgery, all my pain was gone! I must also say that I was never afraid, he makes you feel confident and safe. There aren’t enough words to say Thank You Dr. Virk! I am so grateful for your care!” 

"What a PLEASURE! He listened attentively. He made me feel like what I was going through he wanted to find out WHY! Within 2 days of meeting Dr.V I received a call with a schedule EMG appointment. He is such a great relief when you dont know what's going on. Thanks Dr.V. I trust you."
