Rockville Centre, NY (PRWEB) March 27, 2008
Neurological Surgery, P.C. announced today that it has opened an office in Forest Hills, NY, adding to its offices in Rockville Centre, Great Neck, Commack, and West Islip, NY. Neurological Surgery, P.C. is one of the largest private practices for neurological surgery in the NY/NJ/CT Tri-State area.
"We have many patients coming to our physicians on Long Island from Queens and Brooklyn, so we opened this office in Forest Hills to make it more convenient for them," said Dr. Michael H. Brisman, a partner at Neurological Surgery, P.C. Artem Y. Vaynman, MD, spine specialist, and Lee Eric Tessler, MD, brain specialist, will be available to see patients at this new location. Dr. Vaynman, in addition to being an expert in spine disorders, is also fluent in Russian.
The new office is located at The Pinnacle Building, 112-03 Queens Blvd, Suite 200, Forest Hills, NY 11375 and the phone number is (718) 263-1414. Forest Hills is a neighborhood in the central part of the New York City borough of Queens. It is bordered to the north by Rego Park, to the east by Flushing Meadows Park, the Grand Central Parkway and Kew Gardens, to the west by Middle Village and to the south by Forest Park. Queens is adjacent to Manhattan, Brooklyn, and the Bronx in New York City as well as Nassau County, and is readily accessible from all over the tri-state area of New York, New Jersey, and Connecticut (NY / NJ / CT).
Neurological Surgery P.C.'s facilities and services include a focus on Neuro-Oncology. Jai Grewal, MD is a Neuro-Oncologist who specializes in the management of primary brain and spine tumors, Central Nervous System metastases, and neurological complications of cancer. Paul Duic, MD is a Neuro-Oncologist who specializes in the medical management of brain tumors and spine tumors, including central nervous system (CNS) tumors, gliomas, metastatic tumors, and CNS lymphoma
Neurological Surgery P.C.'s facilities and services also include a focus on Pain Management. Muhammad M. Khan, MD and Madan K Raj, MD, both Board Certiﬁed Interventional Physiatrists, offer treatment of the Spine, Musculoskeletal Medicine and EMG/NCS. EMG, or Electromyography, refers to direct examination of skeletal muscles using a small needle electrode. NCS, or Nerve Conduction Study, refers to examination of peripheral nerve function through electrical stimulation and depolarization.
Drs. Khan and Raj and their staff offer "Technology with a Healing Touch." Pain in the lower back and legs can develop following injury to the spine or as a result of aging and disc degeneration. When this pain is severe it may be associated with the release of certain chemicals which cause inﬂammation and swelling. This inﬂammation can often be decreased simply by rest and common medications such as non-steroidal anti-inﬂammatory medicines. If the inﬂammation persists despite these treatments, cortisone may be recommended.
Cortisone (a type of steroid) is a very powerful anti-inﬂammatory medication. It can be administered as pills taken by mouth or with an injection. When administered by injection the cortisone is maximally concentrated at the site of inﬂammation and higher doses are possible with improved effectiveness. An epidural injection places the cortisone in the space (epidural space)around the spinal nerves. Once injected the cortisone is slowly released into the surrounding tissues and decreases inﬂammation, swelling and pain. The cortisone does not cure the underlying cause of the pain. The goals of the injection are to decrease the pain to a tolerable level and to allow the patient to participate in rehabilitation and therapy while natural healing occurs.
Neurological Surgery, P.C. offers patients the most advanced treatments of brain and spine disorders, using minimally invasive procedures like Gamma Knife, Cyber Knife, Microdiscectomy, Kyphoplasty, X-Stop, Carotid Stenting, Aneurysm Coiling and Interventional Pain Management, rather than major surgery whenever feasible. Their 15 physicians provide compassion combined with knowledge and experience.
