Thank you, Dr. Krisht and St.Vincent staff for saving my life! Dr. Krisht removed a 18 mm x 16mm lesion from my brain on 20 August 2016. My son said post op I remarked to Dr. Krisht that the tumor must have been deeper than we thought because it took four hours to remove it. He said Dr. Krisht just smiled and said, "It was exactly where I thought it was." I tend to believe him!

I was a COPD Stage 4 patient with 2 major brain blockages. I was air-vaced to St. Vincent and prior arrangements had been made with Dr. Krisht by my EMR doctor. I had been told that my chances were slim due to the length of surgery and having to be on ventilator for so long of a time. When Dr. Krisht walked into my room.. I knew, in my heart, that he was God sent. He got me stabilized and after the surgery, I was on my feet within 24 hr. He has a special team that he has. Awesome!!

Dr. Krisht is an awesome Dr. his staff is unhelpful, rude and very unprofessional. I had an aneurysm & after surgery I had to wait 2 months to see Dr Krisht. I had excruciating pain & I was trying to schedule an appt to resolve this pain. The office staff would not let me see him. They said the pain was normal & kept giving me pain pills. they kept saying I needed to go to the ER. I went to the ER 4 times in 2 months. when I finally saw him he apologized & gave me pain prevention medication

Also, U.S. News & World Report recently named him one of the country's leading neurosurgeons.

 

With a focus on cranial neurosurgery, Krisht has an international reputation for his pioneering work with rare tumors and aneurysm treatment. He is also an expert in a variety of neurological subspecialties, including skull-base surgery, cerebral aneurysm, neuro-oncology, epilepsy and other conditions and advanced treatments.

 

"We're very proud that Dr. Krisht has been recognized by Castle Connolly and U.S. News & World Report for his expertise," said Peter D. Banko, President and CEO St. Vincent Health System.
