About

Surgical Director of Pediatric Neuro-Oncology Program

Maria Fareri Children’s Hospital

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. 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
