Neck pain and back issues can be debilitating to your life. When it causes you to miss work, school, or obligations with loved ones, it can make you feel hopeless. We know you want to have it solved as soon as possible. And that you want it done so medically and accurately. Only doctors like ours can understand the intricacies of the neck and spine and provide appropriate solutions. After you tell our neck and back surgeons about your symptoms, they will be able to diagnose you. They will use scientific best practices to present you with your customized treatment for your back or neck pain.

We know that everybody is different. Everybody has a different anatomy, lifestyle, medical history, and personal story. People are so different that even two people with similar disorders and symptoms may require two different treatment options. That is why we strongly believe in personalized medicine and tailor made treatment. When you come to us, we’ll take everything into account. That way, we can give you the best treatment possible. We’ll take all of your life factors into account and make sure that your treatment best suits your life.

Because of our personalized approach, our doctors are all trained in active-listening. They will never make any diagnoses or recommendation without testing you thoroughly and completely. They will ask questions about your lifestyle, history, and symptoms. They’ll listen closely, take notes, and analyze every factor accordingly. They want to make sure you get the best treatment possible for your condition. And while we are a surgical practice, we do not always favor neck or back surgery. Whenever we can, we will always recommend the non-surgical option first.

X-ray icon - Imaging Services - NY Spine



Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) is useful for diagnosing many conditions. It is safe and noninvasive, and helps NYSI to uphold its mission of treating patients with comfort. The digital radiology department allows the radiologist to analyze images for bone and soft tissue anatomy. NYSI diagnostic imaging provides individualized care as well as state-of-the-art diagnostics.


The Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) machine was invented in 1977 and has since revolutionized medical practices everywhere. It is a useful, non-invasive, and safe way to help diagnose conditions. Our MRI machine in Yonkers will give our doctors the tools that they need to analyze your bones and soft tissue anatomy.

Our office in Yonkers has state of the art and technologically advanced diagnostic tools. In addition to our 1.5 MRI system, we also have a Digital Radiography (DX) x-ray.

Our high-field short bore 1.5 MRI system supports many clinical situations. We can do MRI scans of the spine, brain, abdomen, pelvis, shoulder, knee, hip, elbow, wrist, ankle, and even the foot!

New York Spine Institute’s brand-new GE 1.5 system will also provide our physicians with their best images yet. With this system, our doctors will be able to see high-quality and detailed pictures of your condition. That way, they can try to more accurately diagnose and eventually treat your back pain.

Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) uses magnetism and radio waves to produce detailed images of the body. It is extremely safe, non-invasive, and helpful to physicians. Many times, an MRI scan will pick up the presence of a certain disease when other tools such as x-rays cannot.

We know that spine and neck treatment can be scary. But we care about you and don’t want you to be nervous! So we have made our office in Brentwood as calming as possible. When you come here, you will have access to relaxing music, earplugs, and even sleeping masks. You’ll feel right at home.

Our office in Yonkers even outfitted with its own digital radiology department. In this part of our practice, the images are digitized and radiologists can analyze bone and soft tissue. As part of this, we also offer Long Length Imaging (LLI) for proper scoliosis assessment.
