About Kevin C. Yao

Drs. Marc Arginteanu, Frank Moore and Kevin Yao of Metropolitan Neurosurgery Associates consistently provide the finest available surgical treatments to patients with spine and brain disorders. These board-certified neurosurgeons offer sophisticated care by combining years of experience with cutting-edge technology.

Whenever possible, they utilize minimally invasive spine surgery techniques to optimize outcomes for those suffering from back or neck maladies. When caring for people requiring brain or radiosurgery, they routinely employ stereotactic computer guidance. Drs. Arginteanu, Moore and Yao regularly lecture at national medical conferences and teach Mount Sinai Medical Center residents and students. They share their practice with Drs. Alfred Steinberger and Yakov Gologorsky, along with nurse practitioner Damaris Rivera.

“Our treatment plans focus on an individual’s lifestyle,” Dr. Moore says, “with an aim of returning her/him to daily activities shortly after surgery.” “We strive to maximize each patient’s quality of life by restoring neurological function,” Dr. Yao says. “We enable patients to live their lives fully, and not simply exist,” says Dr. Arginteanu. “That’s immensely rewarding.”
