Neurosurgeon Dr. Peter Angevine Now Serving Patients Part-Time at Midtown Location

Apr. 11, 2019

We’re pleased to announce that neurosurgeon Dr. Peter Angevine is now seeing patients on Tuesday mornings at our Midtown location:

ColumbiaDoctors Midtown
51 West 51st Street
New York, NY 10019

Dr. Angevine joins neurosurgeon Dr. Christopher Mandigo, who currently sees patients full-time at our Midtown location. Dr. Angevine will continue to see patients at The Daniel and Jane Och Spine Hospital at NewYork-Presbyterian, as well as at our Bronxville and Tarrytown locations.

Dr. Angevine believes that a surgeon with the most comprehensive training is best able to treat complex spinal conditions, and his unique training in both neurosurgery and orthopedic surgery reflects that.

After completing his neurosurgical residency training at Columbia University Neurological Institute of New York, he pursued a fellowship in spine surgery at the Department of Orthopaedic Surgery at Washington University in St. Louis. In fact, he was the first neurosurgeon to be accepted to and finish the prestigious fellowship. He’s also one of the few neurosurgeons in the world to have done a spine fellowship in orthopedics.

Having this comprehensive background allows Dr. Angevine to consider not only the delicate nerves in the spinal cord but also the bones and joints that make up the spine. Ultimately, his combined expertise in neurosurgery and orthopedics allows him to tackle the most complicated spinal conditions.

Dr. Angevine specializes in treating patients with spinal alignment disorders, such as scoliosis and sagittal imbalance. He treats a range of patients with scoliosis, from those who had the condition present at birth (congenital) to those who develop it later in life (degenerative). He also performs complex revision surgery, a procedure to correct spinal problems in patients who have previously had surgery.

“The patients I primarily take care of are patients I get to know over a long period of time,” Dr. Angevine says in this video. He explains that he doesn’t simply meet a patient, perform surgery and then never see the patient again. “These are patients I see over years and really get to know and help through the process and through the management of their problems.”
