Dr. Schulder also trained in stereotactic neuro-oncology at the University of Florida and the Brigham and Women's Hospital.Dr. Schulder works with neuro-oncologists, radiation oncologists and other neurosurgeons to create evidence-based treatment plans. "We offer close multidisciplinary collaboration to help avoid delay in seeing patients," he says.

He runs a brain tumor clinical trials program, giving his patients ready access to innovative approaches to care. While performing complex neurosurgery is one of the most satisfying parts of Dr. Schulder's job, "empathizing with patients and their families throughout treatment is equally fulfilling," he says.In addition to treating brain tumors, Dr. Schulder performs functional neurosurgery to manage pain conditions like trigeminal neuralgia, and movement disorders including essential tremor and Parkinson's disease. He is the program director of neurosurgical residency training at the Donald and Barbara Zucker School of Medicine at Hofstra/Northwell.
