About BSSNY & What We Do

Experience counts — especially when it comes to brain and spine surgery. Our group was founded in 1958 by the first neurosurgeon in the Hudson Valley. Today, we have thirteen neurosurgeons and three Board-certified spinal orthopedic surgeons, who practice leading-edge medicine.

In our group, you will find surgeons recognized as among the nation’s “Top Doctors,” as well as heads (past and present) of neurosurgical and orthopedic departments, who hold academic appointments at major university teaching centers. You will also find the premier adult and pediatric scoliosis specialists in our region.

Each year, we evaluate nearly 5,000 new patients and perform approximately 2,200 procedures — the volume of care one finds in a major medical center — but with the warmth of a private practice. Your doctors deliver care personally and directly, assisted by a caring staff who are responsive and supportive throughout the entire process.

Our team approach and on-site diagnostic capabilities allow us to accurately diagnose complex brain and spine conditions in adults and children with the latest biomedical technology. We draw upon our outstanding education, training, experience, and skill to perform the most challenging surgeries.  In almost all cases, two of our surgeons are present in the operating room — a significant factor in achieving successful outcomes.

Adult scoliosis usually is the result of untreated childhood scoliosis, but it also may result from a degenerative joint condition.   If spine curvature is significant, surgery may be recommended to correct the curve.

Spinal tumors are rare and usually begin elsewhere in the body and spread through the bloodstream to the spinal cord. Brain tumors are divided into many classifications.
