Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Bilsky "I am a neurosurgeon with an expertise in primary and metastatic tumors in the spine, as well as sinonasal and skull-base tumors. In my role as head of Memorial Sloan-Kettering s multidisciplinary spine tumor team (which is a group of neurosurgeons, surgeons, radiation oncologists, neuroradiologists, neuro-oncologists, and physiatrists), I have pioneered techniques to make spine tumor surgery safer and more effective. I am also a member of the Brain Tumor Center. In addition, I am the author of more than 70 peer-reviewed journal articles and book chapters. I have been on the editorial board of the Annals of Surgical Oncology and am currently an ad hoc reviewer for Neurosurgery. I also participate in the National Institute of Health s International Chordoma Study Group and am a member of the Spine Oncology Study Group. I have a strong interest in training residents and fellows for the practice of neurosurgical oncology. At Memorial Sloan-Kettering, I have supervised the surgical training and recruitment of neurosurgery fellows since 1996, and I also train and supervise neurosurgery residents at Weill Medical College of Cornell University."
