Dr. Lavine's Bio

Dr. Sean D. Lavine dedicates his practice exclusively to diseases associated with the cerebrovascular system and to those diseases treated with endovascular neurosurgical and interventional neuroradiological procedures. He was among the first surgeons in the country to complete training in these procedures after completing neurosurgical training. He serves as a Clinical Co-director of Neuroendovascular Services at the Columbia University Medical Center/NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital, and the Director of Neurointerventional Services at the Valley Hospital in Ridgewood, New Jersey.

Together with Drs. Robert Solomon, E. Sander Connolly, Philip Meyers, and Grace Mandigo, Dr. Lavine and the department offer comprehensive care of cerebrovascular and related diseases. Additionally, Dr. Lavine collaborates with all other members of the Department of Neurosurgery and many other specialties that recommend the use of minimally invasive endovascular and percutaneous procedures to the benefit of patients with a wide variety of conditions.
