Mount Sinai Health System


The Estelle and Daniel Maggin Department of Neurology at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai is equally robust in patient care, education, and research. We strive to improve outcomes in the treatment of Parkinson’s disease, multiple sclerosis, stroke, epilepsy, headache, neuropathies, brain and spinal cord tumors, and other neurological disorders in children and adults. We have six centers, four programs, and one division, all dedicated to this mission. We also offer a variety of educational programs to impart a broad base of knowledge in neuroscience and the clinical ability to recognize and treat the full spectrum of neurologic diseases. We opened our inpatient neurology service in 1900 under the direction of Bernard Sachs, MD, who was the first to describe Tay-Sachs disease. Over the past 100-plus years, we have continued to grow and contribute to research and patient care.  In the 2020-2021 “Best Hospitals” issue of US News & World Report, The Mount Sinai Hospital achieved “Honor Roll” status, a title reserved for the top 20 U.S. hospitals who excel across most levels of clinical care. This includes a #12 ranking for the Mount Sinai Departments of Neurology and Neurosurgery.
