Dr. Michael Virk, MD

Neurosurgeon at Weill Cornell Medicine Center for Comprehensive Spine Care

Meet Dr. Michael Virk, MD

The cornerstone of Dr. Virk's patient treatment philosophy is integrative care, of which surgery is but one component. Dr. Virk is committed to a patient-centered, multidisciplinary approach to spinal disorders that might include deformity, tumors, trauma, spinal cord injury, and degenerative disease, and he tailors treatment plans to individual patients for optimal outcomes. For patients who require surgery, he doesn't believe his role ends after the procedure. He is interested in long-term outcomes following spinal surgery, and to that end he follows his patients long after they leave the OR, and continues to utilize a team-based approach during the post-operative period.
