Paul S Slosberg, MD


Dr. Slosberg introduced an effective medical method (instead of surgery) of treating acute brain hemorrhage due to ruptured aneurysm. This work has been confirmed by other investigators at other institutions. He also introduced a medical method of long-term treatment of brain aneurysms. Other investigators have since agreed with these results also. In addition he has introduced an effective medical method of treating giant, unruptured brain aneurysms and another method of treating non-hemorrhagic stroke and cerebrovascular insufficiency. Earlier, prior to the development of CT and MRI scans, he introduced a change in the method of performing pneumoencephalography, which was a major diagnostic test for brain tumors, etc. at that time, but which had a high morbidity. His modifications of the test significantly reduced the complications and discomfort to patients. His results in this, also, were confirmed by other investigators. Dr. Slosberg has lectured in the United States and abroad. He has authored numerous scientific articles and books on neurology with his particular interest in, and research on, treatment and prevention of stroke. He has chaired multiple sessions at International Congresses of Neurology and of Stroke and has been United States Representative of International Panel on Stroke. He has also been Media Consultant on neurologic  problems including stroke complications which occurred after artificial heart transplantation; Fellow-Council on Stroke, American Heart Association, and Physician Member of Medical Malpractice Panel, Supreme Court, New York. In his practice, the most advanced technology is utilized including magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), magnetic resonance angiography (MRA), computer tomography angiography (CTA) and newer computer tomography (CT) techniques along with adequate time given to history-taking with patients and their examinations.
