Neurosurgery

The board-certified neurologic surgeons at White Plains Hospital are among the most highly skilled in their field. They are experts in performing complex brain and spine surgeries for treatment of the many different types of cancerous brain tumors as well as benign tumors, neurologic conditions and trauma.

Among the numerous resources at the Hospital, our neurologic surgeons operate in state-of-the-art surgical suites using the most current technology and tools to provide exceptional patient care. After surgery, our nurses are uniquely qualified to care for each patient's post-surgical needs, providing a warm and personal hospital stay.

Recently one of our neurologic surgeons – along with the epilepsy team at White Plains Hospital – implanted the first NeuroPace-RNS® (responsive neurostimulator) system in a patient with epilepsy. The new system is a novel treatment for patients with epilepsy whose partial onset seizures are not controlled by medications. Not only did the team pioneer this innovative surgery locally, the Hospital is currently the only healthcare provider in Westchester that is approved to perform this procedure.

Patients with neurologic disorders who previously might have had to travel into the city for their surgical procedures can now have their preoperative evaluation, surgery, chemotherapy or radiation (in the case of malignant disease), and any other necessary medical procedures and follow-up care, right here in White Plains.
