NEUROSURGERY DIVISION

Neurosurgeons manage a diverse group of conditions. They treat a wide range of abnormalities that can include congenital anomalies, tumors of the nervous system, neurovascular disorders, seizure conditions, infections, traumatic brain injury and abnormalities of the aging population such as stroke, functional disorders, and degenerative diseases of the spine.*

At NYSI, we are proud to be the only independent, orthopedic Spine and neurosurgical practice in New York.  What does this mean for our patients? Research has found that surgeries performed by both a neurosurgeon and an orthopedic surgeon, patients were less likely to develop major complications and have the highest level of successful surgical outcomes.*

PHYSICAL THERAPY DIVISION

Physical Therapy is used to encourage mobility and movement, decrease pain, restore function and prevent disability in patients with injuries or impairments.* This is achieved through the use of modalities, active and passive stretching, engaging in an exercise program and manual therapy.  Patients are taught proper body mechanics, postural awareness and home exercise programs to provide maintenance of their current condition and to avoid exacerbations in the future.  The New York Spine Institute offers an array of weight machines to improve strength, in addition to cardio apparatuses for endurance training.  Patients will be evaluated by a licensed physical therapist to determine their current level of function, pain intensity and restrictions with their activities of daily living.  Michael Friar, D.P.T. will discuss the treatment options available to the patient based on the findings from the initial evaluation and set realistic goals in conjunction with the patient to receive the most optimal regimen.*

Specialized medical care focused on the individual

Although they can be fairly common, orthopedic and spine problems are never routine. They can be very painful and can impact your health and well-being, each condition we encounter at New York Spine Institute is handled with special, careful attention. In other words, we treat your spine and orthopedic problem as a unique situation, because it is. That way we can give you the most fitting care for your particular needs – care that’s founded on experience and sound medical principles.

Working with your doctor for the best care

We work in conjunction with your doctor to make sure we are providing appropriate care that suits your specific medical needs. When your doctor refers you to us for your spine or orthopedic problem we’re always available to them for consultation about your case and to answer any questions. We also make sure that they’re always informed about your condition and treatment, and we rely on their valuable input about your medical history.
