Millions of Americans fall in the clutches of some form of brain impairment and neuropathy.

How we can Help you

At Queens Crossing Neurosurgery, Dr. Harrison Mu, takes an approach to neurosurgery that is unique compared to many other surgeons in New York City. After performing a thorough review of your symptoms and test results, we take the time to explain and educate you about your condition. With this understanding, you will be able to actively participate in deciding upon and forming a treatment plan that is best for you. Here are a few diagnostic procedures that we use to evaluate and treat brain and spine disorders:

  • Biopsies: Biopsies allow us to study a sample of cells or tissue for identifying abnormalities. We use biopsies to identify cancerous cells, outgrowths, and infections within the brain or spinal cord and guide necessary actions.
  • CT/MRI scans: We use both computerized tomography (CT) scan and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) to get clear images of certain disorders. The results obtained from these scans help us in doing better medical modeling and surgical planning.
  • Electroencephalograms (EEG): EEG is used to evaluate and monitor the electrical activity in the patient’s brain. This diagnostic procedure is particularly helpful in diagnosing brain trauma, seizures, and coma. The technique is minimally invasive, and the patient does not require sedation.
  • Myelography: We use this imaging test to get a clear picture of your nerve roots, spinal cord, and spinal column. It helps us in diagnosing herniated disks, spinal tumors, and other spinal conditions. This test can be performed on an outpatient basis, allowing the patient to go home the same day.
