Amrit K. Chiluwal, MD

Dr. Amrit K. Chiluwal is a neurosurgeon with a particular interest in treating diseases of the brain and spine with minimally invasive techniques. Dr. Chiluwal graduated medical school from New York Medical College, where he was the recipient of the prestigious Trustee Scholarship.  He then completed his neurosurgery residency at Northwell Health, one of the largest and busiest neurosurgical centers in the Northeast. He also completed his chief residency year at Northwell Health.  Dr. Chiluwal has a special interest in treating degenerative diseases of the cervical and lumbar spine and deep lesions/tumors of the brain and skull base.  

Dr. Chiluwal has extensive experience in managing chronic back and neck pain stemming from degenerative spine disease. He fundamentally believes that spine surgery should be the option of last resort – when all other non-surgical options have been fully exhausted. When the patient does require surgery, Dr. Chiluwal uses novel, minimally invasive techniques for faster recovery and minimal postoperative pain. He also uses newer non-fusion techniques such as artificial disc surgery to restore range of motion and avoid spinal fusion.

Dr. Chiluwal’s emphasis on minimally invasive surgery carries over to cranial surgeries as well. He uses smaller incisions, endoscopic techniques, and advanced neuronavigation guided surgeries so that tumors deep in the brain and at the base of the skull are removed in the safest and least invasive possible manner.

Dr. Chiluwal has authored multiple scholarly articles and book chapters, and has presented his work at national, international and regional neurosurgery conferences. He has also done international clinical work in neurosurgery. Dr. Chiluwal is fluent in English, Hindi, Nepali and Urdu.

Mohsen Nouri, M.D

Mohsen Nouri, M.D. is a neurosurgeon with dual fellowship training in both endovascular and cerebrovascular surgeries with surgical expertise to treat various vascular diseases of brain and spine such as stroke, aneurysms, arteriovenous malformations, vascular dissections, carotid artery stenosis, Moyamoya disease, cavernous malformation, and venous/lymphatic malformations. Based on the lesion characteristics, Dr. Nouri is able to offer and perform a wide range of treatment options from very aggressive and complex skull base surgeries to minimally invasive endovascular/angiographic techniques.

After finishing his medical school and residency in Neurosurgery at Tehran University of Medical Sciences in Iran, Dr. Nouri did a research fellowship in cerebrovascular surgeries at Fujita Health University in Japan in 2014. In 2017, he did a fellowship at Weill Cornell neurosurgery department in New York where he learned complex skull base techniques to treat brain vascular abnormalities. Dr. Nouri did his first clinical fellowship in endovascular surgical neuroradiology from 2017 to 2019 at Mount Sinai Hospital, NY with a focus on treating brain and spine vascular diseases with minimally invasive techniques through the groin or writs vessels. His second clinical fellowship was on cerebrovascular and skull base surgeries at North Shore University Hospital, NY from 2019 to 2020 concentrated on performing classic open surgeries for treatment of brain and spine vascular lesions. His main professional focus is on vascular diseases of the brain and spine after years of research and clinical education on different aspects and modalities of treating such lesions.

Conditions treat:

  • Acute Stroke interventions and thrombectomy
  • Brain hemorrhage (endoscopic or open evacuation)
  • Brain aneurysm (clipping, coiling, flow diverters, bypass)
  • Spine and brain vascular malformation (open surgery, radiosurgery, embolization)
  • Arteriovenous fistulae of brain and spine (open surgery, embolization)
  • Cavernous malformation

  • Moyamoya disease (brain vessels bypass)
  • Vein of Galen malformation (open surgery, embolization)
  • Venous or lymphatic malformations of the head and neck (sclerotherapy, open surgery)
