About Marc Shaun Arginteanu

Dr. Marc Arginteanu consistently provides the finest available surgical treatments to patients with spine and brain disorders. This board-certified neurosurgeon offers sophisticated care by combining decades of experience with cutting-edge technology. “Everyone wants a surgeon who is technically competent, especially when facing a serious medical issue,” he says. “Patients appreciate my surgical skills, but also my straight-forward manner of explaining their condition and my willingness to listen to and address their concerns and questions.”

At Metropolitan Neurosurgery Associates, Dr. Arginteanu works with Dr. Alfred Steinberger, Dr. Frank Moore, Dr. Kevin Yao and Dr. Yakov Gologorsky, along with nurse practitioner Damaris Rivera. He and his partners lecture at national medical conferences and teach residents and students at Mount Sinai Medical Center. Whenever possible, this team utilizes 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. “Advancing technology is making surgery less invasive and more effective, with fewer complications,” says Dr. Arginteanu.

The group’s treatment plans focus on individual lifestyles, with an aim of returning patients to daily activities shortly after surgery. “We enable people to live their lives fully, and not simply exist,” says Dr. Arginteanu. “That’s immensely rewarding.”
