Explore the neurosciences at Maimonides
Our neurological team works collectively with other medical specialists to provide comprehensive care to our patients. We use the latest diagnostics and technology to treat a variety of neurological conditions.
As opposed to traditional vascular neurosurgery, Interventional Neuroradiology uses 3D X-ray imaging that helps guide us as we insert a tiny tube into the leg artery so that we can address a clogged blood vessel.
Neuro-ophthalmology requires knowledge of the eye, brain, nerves, and muscles to treat conditions of the eye and brain, as well as symptoms of neurological conditions that are eye-related. This can include vision loss, abnormal eye movements, double vision, and more.
The advance of diagnostic capabilities has paralleled and often enabled the treatment of neurological disorders previously considered untreatable. At Maimonides, our Neurosurgery Department uses the most advanced technology, and our highly trained neurosurgery team provides surgical treatment for vascular, tumorous, and degenerative lesions of the brain, skull base, and spine.
Our Spinal Neurosurgery team of neurosurgeons uses a multidisciplinary approach to provide innovative spine treatment for children and adults. Spinal surgeons specialize in a wide range of conditions, including back pain, lumbar stenosis, disk degeneration, and many types of spinal trauma.

- Alzheimer’s Disease
- Carpal tunnel syndrome
- Headache disorders and migraines
- Memory disorders
- Multiple Sclerosis
- Myasthenia gravis
- Neck and back pain

The Linda Morgante Multiple Sclerosis Care Center
Multiple sclerosis (MS) is an autoimmune disease that affects the brain and spinal cord. MS is caused by damage to the myelin sheath, the protective covering that surrounds nerve cells. When this nerve covering is damaged, nerve impulses are slowed down or stopped.
MS is a progressive disease, meaning the nerve damage gets worse over time. This nerve damage is caused by inflammation when the body’s immune cells attack the nervous system. The speed and severity of nerve damage vary in individuals. Repeated episodes of inflammation can occur in any area of the brain and spinal cord.
Every day, researchers make strides toward finding a cure for MS. Our team is committed to offering first-class MS therapy designed to treat the symptoms of MS.
We are recognized as an “MS Center of Excellence” by the NYC Chapter of the National MS Society
