Welcome Neurosurgeon Dr. Marc Otten to our Columbia Team!


We couldn’t be happier to announce the addition of Dr. Marc Otten to our neurosurgical team here at Columbia University Medical Center/New York Presbyterian Hospital.

Dr. Otten is an exceptional surgeon–we should know, we trained him. After completing his medical degree with honors at Cornell University, he completed the rigorous seven-year residency here in the Department of Neurosurgery at the Neurological Institute.

He graduated in 2013 and went on to a fellowship at the Minimally Invasive Cranial Base Surgery Center at Thomas Jefferson University in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. There, he concentrated on endoscopic, micro-surgical and non-operative approaches to brain and spinal disorders.

Dr. Otten has joined The Brain Tumor Center and Pituitary Tumor Center teams here at Columbia University Medical Center/New York Presbyterian Hospital, where he has also been named Assistant Professor of Neurological Surgery. He will spend most of his time seeing patients at Columbia’s affiliate, Lawrence Hospital Center in Bronxville, New York, and one day a week he’ll be at Stamford Hospital in Stamford, Connecticut.

You may recognize this remarkable physician from past resident updates and other blog posts. In 2013, he was co-author of a paper on Brain Connectivity and Stroke Outcome presented at the annual meeting of the Congress of Neurological Surgeons (CNS) in San Francisco. See our posts about that here and here.

When Dr. Otten graduated that same year, he was also featured in Dr. Neil Feldstein’s annual resident picture (seen below right). Read more about that here.
