      Why Does Experience Matter?

      Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.

      Dr. Lavine says...

      Dr. Lavine dedicates his practice exclusively to diseases associated with the cerebrovascular system and to those diseases treated with Endovascular Neurosurgical and Interventional Neuroradiological Procedures. He was among the first surgeons in the country to complete training in these procedures after completing neurosurgical training.

      He serves as a Clinical Co-Director of Neuroendovascular Services at NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital/Columbia University Medical Center . Together with Drs. Robert Solomon, E. Sander Connolly, Philip Meyers, Daniel Sahlein and Dorothea Altschul, Dr. Lavine and the Department offer comprehensive care of cerebrovascular and related diseases. Additionally, Dr. Lavine collaborates with all other members of the Department of Neurosurgery and many other specialties that recommend the use of minimally invasive endovascular and percutaneous procedures to the benefit of patients with a wide variety of conditions.
