A Note From the Chairman
I am pleased to introduce you to our newsletter for the Clinical Neurosciences at Montefiore. Each month, these updates will highlight our novel approach to patient care that is made possible by the ongoing and proactive collaboration between the Departments of Neurosurgery, Neurology and Radiology. Because clinicians from these specialties cooperate so closely together, we are able to consistently provide seamless, comprehensive and multi-dimensional care to patients with a wide range of diseases and disorders of the central nervous system.
Our talented and experienced subspecialists all share one overriding goal: To ensure expert and compassionate treatment for all patients who are referred to us, from initial evaluation to follow-up care.
To treat spinal conditions and injuries, we also form special teams with orthopedic surgeons and physiatrists. The collegial manner in which we operate maximizes our expertise and provides numerous, vital advantages for our patients. Notably, it allows them to benefit from the input and skills of clinicians from a number of different disciplines—all of whom are singularly focused on our patient’s recovery and ultimate well-being. This approach breaks down issues of departmentalism in favor of teams that are dedicated solely to best meeting the needs of our patients.
Because of this concerted multidisciplinary approach, we offer one of the most advanced neurosciences programs in the New York Metropolitan area that leaves no aspect of care uncovered.
Important areas that we concentrate on include: stroke; hemorrhagic diseases, such as aneurysms and vascular malformations, and brain tumors.
We are looking forward to sharing our innovations and accomplishments in this monthly newsletter, which I encourage you to read. I also urge you to contact me with any questions you may have. We are eager to help you in your management of your patients and look forward to hearing from you.
With best wishes,
