Columbia Neurosurgeons Made it to Prime Time on NY Med

Last night’s episode of the popular hospital docudrama NY Med featured some of New York Presbyterian/Columbia Medical Center’s talented neurosurgical staff.

Neurosurgeon Dr. Christopher Mandigo and former neurosurgical resident Dr. Brad Zacharia were featured in the show. They were followed as they took care of one of their patients–a man who needed spinal surgery and was also homeless.

Dr. Zacharia reflected in a blog post on ABC News recently that between medical school and the demanding residency training for neurosurgery, he has spent more than a third of his life at New York Presbyterian/Columbia University Medical Center. Dr. Zacharia  finished his decade-long neurosurgical residency training just days ago, and said he feels “privileged to have trained” at NYP/CUMC “with some of the best neurosurgeons in the world.”

One of these neurosurgeons is Dr. Christopher Mandigo, Assistant Professor of Clinical Neurosurgery, also featured in last night’s episode. Dr. Mandigo splits his time at CUMC teaching neurosurgical residents, treating patients, and performing research. He, too, attended medical school and completed his residency at Columbia!

This episode of NY Med aired on Thursday, July 17, 2014 from 10:00-11:00 pm on ABC. It can be streamed any time on or Hulu. Last night’s show was Episode 4 of Season 2 (Episode 204).
