Brisman, M.D., F.A.C.S., a senior partner at Neurological Surgery, P.C. “Our practice already offers a unique model of university-level care in a convenient, community setting. As we continue to grow, we are pleased that a surgeon of Dr. Holtzman’s stature further deepens our ability to provide subspecialty care without leaving one’s community.”
One of the largest and most highly specialized private practices in greater New York, Neurological Surgery, P.C. has 25 affiliated physicians including 15 neurosurgeons representing a range of brain and spinal surgery sub-specialties. Other specialties and sub-specialties represented in the practice include interventional neuroradiology, neuro-oncology, neuro-ophthalmology, epileptology (epilepsy neurology), pain management, critical care neurology and neurophysiology, as well as the clinical psychology specialty of neuropsychology.
“It seemed like a natural fit for me to join this group of stellar neurosurgeons, many of whom trained at Harvard or Columbia University’s Neurological Institute,” said Dr. Holtzman, who received his undergraduate and medical training at the two prestigious academic institutions.
Dr. Holtzman is board certified in neurosurgery as well as in psychiatry and neurology. His interests include cranial, spinal and peripheral nerve surgery. He received his undergraduate degree from Harvard College and his medical degree from Columbia University’s College of Physicians and Surgeons. He completed an internship at Harlem Hospital Center, and both neurology and neurosurgery residencies at Columbia University’s Neurological Institute of New York.

Among his achievements, Dr. Holtzman, together with Ronald Winston, founded the Stonwin Medical Conference, a global neurosurgery meeting held in New York. With Mr. Winston, he also created traveling fellowships for neurosurgery residents through the Harry Winston Research Foundation. Five books were published based on these conferences, beginning in 1985. The last of these, “Endovascular Interventional Neuroradiology,” was the first book edited by neurosurgeons on this topic.
Dr. Holtzman serves as Secretary Treasurer and Director of the Harry Winston Research Foundation and as Chairman of the New York City Chapter of the Jackson Laboratory’s National Council. He has collaborated with Herbert Juli, Executive Director of the World Jewish Congress Foundation, to fund graduate student fellowships at the Laboratory for biological and genetic research.
