Dr. Erich Anderer

Dr. Erich Anderer is the chief of neurosurgery at NYU Langone - Hospital Brooklyn, and an assistant professor in the Department of Neurosurgery at the NYU School of Medicine. He was born in Japan and grew up in NYC, where his family utilized a Reiki and shiatsu practitioner in conjunction with the family physician for preventative health care and maintenance. Dr. Anderer performs about 200 spine and brain surgeries a year, and is an expert in complex spine surgery. He has an interest in self care as a means to prevent and treat most causes of neck and back pain. He is also helping to investigate ways to reduce the use of opiates in post-surgical patients, and eliminate their use in chronic pain. He is an enthusiastic (albeit a beginner) student of yoga, and spends as much time outdoors with his wife and two children as possible. Dr. Anderer is a board member of the NY State Neurosurgical Society, the Japanese Medical Society of America, and the Open Space Alliance, a parks conservancy in Brooklyn.
