Neurology Billing & Coding Services

White Plains Hospital’s board-certified neurological surgeons are among the most experienced in their field. They are experts in performing complex brain and spine surgeries to treat the many different types of malignant brain tumors, as well as benign tumors, neurological disorders, and trauma.

In addition to the hospital’s many resources, our neurological surgeons work in state-of-the-art operating rooms equipped with the latest technology and instrumentation to provide excellent patient care. After surgery, our nurses uniquely care for each patient’s post-operative needs, providing a warm and personalized hospital stay.

Recently, one of our neurological surgeons worked with the epilepsy team at White Plains Hospital to implant the first NeuroPace-RNS® (responsive neurostimulator) system in a patient with epilepsy. The new system is a novel treatment for epilepsy patients whose partial-onset seizures cannot be controlled by medication. Not only did the team pioneer this innovative procedure locally, but the hospital is currently the only healthcare provider in Westchester licensed to perform it.

Patients with neurological conditions who previously had to travel to the city for their surgical procedures can now have their preoperative evaluation, surgery, chemotherapy or radiation (in the case of malignancy), and all other necessary medical procedures and follow-up care performed right here in White Plains.
