Neurosurgery (Spine and Brain)

Led by Dr. Anders Cohen, a nationally recognized expert in minimally invasive spine surgery, the Division of Neurosurgery offers preventive care, rehabilitation, medical care and effective surgical procedures for multiple conditions of the spine and brain.

In 2006 Dr. Cohen became the first surgeon in New York City to perform the minimally invasive XLIF and AxiaLIF procedures. Years later, he remains one of the most sought after regional leaders in spine care, performing numerous minimally invasive procedures including Zero Profile Cervical Fusion (plateless cervical stabilization) and dynamic rod stabilization.
