Neil Khilnani, M.D.
Dr Khilnani's approach to personalized care is exemplified by the time he spends with each of his patients, making sure that each of his patients is treated the way he would like to be treated himself. On the first visit, he personally speaks with each patient, and will examine them and perform any necessary diagnostic tests at the same time. He then takes the time to discuss the findings, their implications and possible treatments. He cares for the full spectrum of lower extremity venous disease, including spider veins, varicose veins, venous thrombosis and skin injury related to chronic venous disease. He also has an interest in varicose veins which are result of prior pregnancies.
He draws on 25 years of experience that he has had at Weill Cornell Medical College and from the leadership opportunities afforded to him in the societies he has been active in. Dr. Khilnani is currently the President of the American College of Phlebology, the largest society for medical professionals involved in vein care in North America. He is also currently the President-Elect of the Intersocietal Accreditation Commission-Vein Center, the organization responsible for accreditation of Vein Centers in the United States as well as the Venous Service Line representative to the Executive Committee the Society of Interventional Radiology. He is member of the Board of Directors of the American Board of Venous and Lymphatic Medicine.
Dr. Khilnani received a Bachelors degree in Bioengineering from Princeton University and an MD from the Mount Sinai School of Medicine. After an Internship at the Mount Sinai Hospital in New York, he completed a residency in Radiology at New York Presbyterian Hospital-Columbia University Medical Center where he served as Chief Resident in his final year. He received additional sub-specialty fellowship training in Vascular and Interventional Radiology at the NYP-Columbia University Medical Center and The College of Physicians and Surgeons of Columbia University prior to joining the faculty at Cornell.
Dr. Khilnani has been a member of the Division of Cardiovascular and Interventional Radiology at the New York Presbyterian Hospital-Weill Cornell Medical Center since 1992. He is an Associate Professor of Clinical Radiology at the Weill Medical College of Cornell University.
