Six Neurological Surgery, P.C. Physicians Named U.S. News & World Report “TOP DOCTORS”

ROCKVILLE, CENTRE, NY – Neurosurgeons Jeffrey A. Brown, M.D., F.A.C.S., Robert N. Holtzman, M.D., Stephen T. Onesti, M.D., F.A.C.S. and Jonathan L. Brisman, M.D., along with epilepsy neurologist Alan B. Ettinger, M.D. and interventional neuroradiologist John Pile-Spellman, M.D., F.A.C.R, have been named to U.S. News & World Report’s 2013 “Top Doctors” list.  The six specialists are attending physicians with Neurological Surgery, P.C., one of the Northeast’s leading practices of neurosurgeons and allied specialists.

“We are honored that six physicians from our private practice have been named to this national list,” said Michael H. Brisman, M.D., F.A.C.S., CEO at Neurological Surgery, P.C.  “Their selection for ‘Top Doctors’ is one more indication that our practice provides the most advanced university-level care in a community setting.”  

The six NSPC physicians chosen for the list are leaders in their fields.  Dr. Brown is one of a select few highly specialized neurosurgeons in the U.S. who use a range of modalities to treat chronic facial pain. A leading neurosurgeon with extensive experience treating a variety of brain and spinal conditions, Dr. Holtzman has practiced at some of the nation’s top teaching hospitals and academic medical centers. Dr. Onesti, one of the nation’s top spine neurosurgeons, has served as chief of neurosurgery at two leading New York hospitals.  Dr. Brisman, an endovascular neurosurgeon, is one of about 100 neurosurgeons in the nation trained in both endovascular and micro-neurosurgical techniques, and the first endovascular neurosurgeon on Long Island.

Dr. Ettinger is a nationally known epilepsy specialist who has dedicated his life to helping individuals with seizures and related disorders. Dr. Pile-Spellman is an international leader in interventional neuroradiology, a field of medicine that uses image-guided catheter-based techniques to treat diseases of the blood vessels of the brain and spine.
