Dr. Patrick J. Reid, MD, West Islip, NY 11795

Dr. Reid received his medical degree from University College London, England. He completed his general surgery internship and residency in neurological surgery at the University of Rochester. During his residency he spent time at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles, where he furthered his experience in endoscopic pituitary surgery and minimally invasive spine surgery. He is a member of the Congress of Neurological Surgeons and the American Association of Neurological Surgeons.

Dr Reid’s main interests include treating those with neck and back problems, and pituitary tumors. He is also able to offer treatments for peripheral entrapment syndromes such as carpal tunnel syndrome.

Dr Reid acknowledges that the vast majority of patients seen do not require surgery, and a multi-disciplinary approach is often needed involving other physicians, and alternative therapists such as physical therapists. For those that require spine surgery, Dr Reid is able to offer a variety of options, from simple discectomy to minimally invasive multi-level spinal fusion. For those with pituitary tumors that require operative intervention, he is able to offer endoscopic resection.

Dr. Patrick Reid is a Neurosurgeon with South Shore Brain and Spine Specialists.
