Neurological Surgery


Jared Knopman, M.D., is a board-certified neurosurgeon and interventional neuroradiologist who specializes in cerebrovascular disorders, including aneurysms, AVM’s, brain tumors, and carotid occlusive disease. He has expertise in embolization of aneurysms and AVM’s, carotid stenting/endarterectomy, and intra-arterial chemotherapy. He also performs spinal cord stimulation and microvascular decompression for chronic pain syndromes and trigeminal neuralgia. He is one of the few neurosurgeons in New York City with dual expertise in both open neurosurgical as well as minimally invasive interventional techniques for the treatment of neurologic disease, which affords him a unique perspective in determining the optimal treatment for each individual patient's needs using the most cutting-edge technologies. Dr. Knopman has been named to the SuperDoctors Rising Stars list, a distinction afforded the top 2.5% of physicians in his field. His expertise is widely sought and he serves as a consultant to other neurosurgeons, travelling the country to proctor them in advanced stenting techniques for complex aneurysms.

Dr. Knopman received a B.A. and graduated cum laude and with honors from Northwestern University. Dr. Knopman received an M.D. from Mount Sinai School of Medicine, where he was elected to the AOA honor society. Dr. Knopman did his surgical internship and neurosurgical residency, also serving as chief resident, at NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital/Weill Cornell Medical College and Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Hospital. Dr. Knopman did specialized fellowship training in endovascular neurosurgery/interventional neuroradiology at Weill Cornell Medical College. He has surgical and interventional expertise in treating a diverse array of diseases of the brain and spine.

Dr. Knopman has extensive research experience in the area of minimally invasive neurosurgery and has published both articles and book chapters pertaining to the treatment of degenerative spinal disease, brain tumors, and aneurysms utilizing the most innovative, least invasive approaches. He was one of the original authors of a novel trial of super-selective treatment of malignant brain tumors using targeted chemotherapy, as featured in The New York Times, and he has subsequently expanded this technique to children. He frequently lectures both nationally and internationally. Dr. Knopman has been awarded the prestigious CNS/Micrus Endovascular Neurosurgery grant, and from 2014 to 2017 he held the Leonard and Fleur Harlan Clinical Scholarship for his research in vascular disease. In addition, he is the Principal Investigator at Weill/Cornell of an NIH-funded study utilizing topical antibiotics to lower the risk of infection after brain surgery. This is the only such trial occurring in the country.
