Dr. Levine has built one the area’s most distinguished program with a team of top surgeons, who are supported by a cadre of specially trained neuroscience experts. Together they deliver critical diagnostic, medical and supportive care to help patients prepare and recover from neurosurgery treatment. In 2015, US News and World Report ranked Holy Cross Hospital as one of the best hospitals in the Washington D.C. area and recognized its high performance in neurology and neurosurgery.
Patients benefit from a depth of training and expertise that is unique for a community hospital and comparable to the quality and sophistication of any academic medical center. The team includes:
The team works hand-in-hand, employing the most current techniques available to accurately diagnose and treat disorders of the spine and brain that require surgical treatment.

To help ensure the best possible outcomes for patients, neurosurgeons at Holy Cross Hospital use sophisticated imaging tools to pinpoint abnormalities—“brain mapping” that produces real-time images to guide the surgeon during the procedure and minimize damage to surrounding tissue.
Today increasing numbers of patients are candidates for minimally invasive neurosurgery techniques—procedures that increase safety, speed recovery—and improve outcomes.
Dr. Levine and his team have special expertise in some of the most advanced neurosurgical techniques including:
