Professional Statement

  • Selected by Castle Connolly as one of New York Metro’s Top Doctors for 10 years in a row, Dr. Brisson has been helping his patients relieve their back pain for over 25 years and currently serves as the Director of Spinal Surgery at New York Downtown Hospital. He has been acknowledged as the best Back Pain Doctor in NYC and has been highlighted on the cover of the Best Doctors in New York issue.
  • Dr. Brisson’s approach to spinal care is conservative, and he typically starts with non-invasive treatments like physical therapy and rehabilitation exercises before turning to surgical procedures.
  • He is actively involved with his patients, taking time to evaluate their overall health and medical history while determining the best course of treatment. The decision to undergo spinal surgery is complex and often fraught with anxiety. Dr. Brisson makes sure his patients understand their options and know what to expect during treatment. If surgery is needed, he and his staff are available before, during, and after the operation to answer questions and offer advice.
