Driving our field forward

The Department of Neurosurgery at Lenox Hill Hospital treats complex conditions of the brain, nervous system and spine that can have subtle and far-reaching effects on a patient's life. Through research and clinical trials, the department is on the leading-edge of innovative surgical techniques, as well as non-surgical treatment options that are safe and effective.

During the treatment process, our doctors often see opportunities to advance patient care. Working closely with the research staff at the Feinstein Institute for Medical Research, they help develop new and improved diagnostic tools, medications, devices, treatment protocols and more.

Dedicated research centers

  • Brain Tumor Center  Our investigators work within our Brain Tumor Biotech Center, an interactive hub for scientists, clinicians, and biotech companies in the neuro-oncology space at the Feinstein Institute for Medical Research, to accelerate the delivery of novel drugs to patients living with brain tumors.
  • Center for Pituitary and Neuroendocrine Disorders  The center focuses on prolactinomas, acromegaly, Cushing's disease, Rathke's cleft cysts, craniopharyngiomas and other pituitary tumors, as well as hypothalamic tumors and meningiomas
  • Cerebrovascular and Endovascular Neurosurgery Center – Working with investigators at the Feinstein Institute for Medical Research, our neurosurgeons have published and presented several studies on carotid revascularization, NOVA flow measurements in AVM patients and aneurysm clipping outcomes.
  • Spine Center – The laboratory conducts research on stem cell behavior in the disc environment in both healthy and diseased states and examines the role of inflammation and mechanical stress in disc degeneration.

A clinical trial directed by Lenox Hill Hospital neurosurgeon Dr. Boockvar—in which cancer patients are given a chemotherapy drug delivered directly into their tumors—is giving hope to people with a highly aggressive type of brain cancer.

The Brain Tumor Biotech Center at the Feinstein Institute for Medical Research, in collaboration with Voices Against Brain Cancer, hosted the Brain Tumor Biotech Summit. The focus was on fostering collaboration between science and medical professionals and members of the financial community.
