Hudson Neurosurgery

Our Practice Philosophy


Combining the skills & resources of an academic medical center with the white glove service of a private practice

Welcome to Hudson Neurosurgery. Here, our professionals know that management of spinal health can be a complex and often confusing process. Our mission is to help our patients learn about their conditions and receive treatment in a compassionate and efficient way.

Our process of establishing a diagnosis and treatment plan reflects nearly 20 years of caring for thousands of patients with some of the most challenging spinal conditions imaginable. We specialize in unusual and difficult diagnoses and developing care plans for patients who have medical co-morbidities and complex histories of multiple prior procedures.

We aim to educate our patients in a comfortable environment while offering them necessary comprehensive care. We understand that many people have anxiety about spinal problems, so we created a soothing environment and a team of skilled team members who can help you through this process. By combining the latest technology with traditional techniques, we give our patients the best care in the New York metropolitan region.
