Certification: Neurological Surgery,

Jared Pisapia, MD, MTR, is an attending neurosurgeon at Maria Fareri Children's Hospital at Westchester Medical Center.

Dr. Pisapia has a broad interest in all areas of pediatric neurosurgery with a particular focus on pediatric tumors of the brain and spine, hydrocephalus, Chiari malformations, and congenital and traumatic spine disorders. He also treats pediatric and adult patients with peripheral nerve injuries and disorders, including neonatal brachial plexus injury, and peripheral nerve lesions, such as nerve sheath tumors.

Raised in Staten Island, New York, Dr. Pisapia received his Bachelor of Arts, Master's Degree, and Medical Degree from the University of Pennsylvania. He completed neurosurgery residency at the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania. Dr. Pisapia pursued fellowship training in pediatric neurosurgery at the Children's Hospital of Philadelphia with a focus on neuro-oncology. He completed additional fellowship training in peripheral nerve surgery at the University of Pennsylvania and Shriners Hospitals for Children in Philadelphia.

Dr. Pisapia is privileged to provide care for pediatric patients. As a father, he deeply appreciates the trust bestowed on a surgeon to operate on a child, and he approaches this responsibility with the utmost respect and care. He prides himself on explaining difficult concepts to patients and families in easy-to-understand terms and offers the most up-to-date and minimally invasive techniques, such as endoscopic approaches, stereotaxis, and laser ablation, on an individualized basis. He is dedicated to a multidisciplinary and compassionate approach to care to ensure the best possible outcome for his patients.

Dr. Pisapia's research interests involve applying image analysis and machine learning techniques to non-invasively predict neurosurgical patient outcomes or disease characteristics, such as the need for shunt surgery in patients at risk of developing hydrocephalus or the growth of brain tumors. In addition, he works to develop devices to better treat hydrocephalus, including a patented handheld device that uses ultrasound energy to break up clots within tubes. Dr. Pisapia has secured grant funding from various sources, including the National Institutes of Health and Pediatric Hydrocephalus Society, and he has published his findings in multiple peer-reviewed publications, such as NeuroOncology and JAMA Pediatrics.

He is board certified in both pediatric and adult neurosurgery.
