    Neurosurgical services are now available at Rome Memorial Hospital with the addition of board certified neurosurgeon Dr. Nicholas Qandah. Dr. Qandah will serve as medical director of Neurosciences at Rome Memorial Hospital, where he will perform surgery and treat patients with neurosurgical disorders.
    Dr. Qandah, who is board certified in Neurosurgery and Fellowship trained in both Orthopedic and Neurosurgical Spine, has opened a new office in Rome at Chestnut Commons, 107 E. Chestnut Street, Suite 105.
    Fellowship trained in Complex and Minimally-Invasive Spine Surgery, Dr. Qandah has special interests and expertise in Regenerative and Less Invasive Treatments of the spine to get his patients better and back to enjoying life.
    “We are pleased to welcome Dr. Qandah and his practice Central New York Brain & Spine Neurosurgery to Rome to provide convenient access to care so our patients don’t have to travel out of town,” said David Lundquist, President/Chief Executive Officer of Rome Memorial Hospital. “In Dr. Qandah, we are bringing to Rome a world class surgeon who has an established reputation of excellence in this region based upon his clinical expertise and his ability to communicate with patients and make them feel at ease.”
    “Anyone who suffers from back or neck pain knows that the pain and discomfort can be debilitating and effect every part of life,” continued Lundquist. “Dr. Qandah provides his patients with options to relieve pain and restore function. Almost as importantly, he has the unique ability to communicate with patients and their families in order to ease their minds when they are facing what can be a difficult procedure or surgery.”
    “For the last several years I have been treating patients from the Rome area in my New Hartford office,” said Dr. Qandah. “It makes a lot of sense for me to offer convenient access for my patients in Rome.”
    “What impresses me in Rome is the hospital’s demonstrated record for providing safe high-quality patient care,” he explained. “Rome Memorial Hospital has been nationally recognized for its safety because the use of evidence-based practices is ingrained into their DNA.”
    Dr. Qandah also expressed praise for the hospital’s willingness to facilitate his goal of opening an office for Central New York Brain & Spine Neurosurgery in Rome. “I have enjoyed working with the entire hospital team to establish this service in Rome for the convenience of our patients,” he said. “The collaborative environment is built upon a spirit of teamwork and respect. The hospital provides an atmosphere for us to work together to deliver the very best care for our patients.”
