Dr. Neil Khilnani's clinical and research interests include the minimally invasive treatment of varicose veins and uterine fibroids. Using advanced techniques such as endovenous laser ablation (EVLT), sclerotherapy and microphlebectomy, most varicose veins can eliminated without the need for surgery. These treatments are performed in an outpatient office setting without the need for anesthesia and with essentially no recovery period. The care of fibroid related symptoms has changed dramatically in the last few years. Using Uterine Fibroid Embolization (UFE), fibroids can be treated in a minimally invasive fashion with a significantly reduced recovery period. Dr. Khilnani maintains an active clinical practice utilizing UFE. Dr. Khilnani is also involved in the clinical investigation of MR guided Focused Ultrasound (MRgFUS) therapy using the Insightec Exablate. This procedure is being performed at Cornell and offers an effective, completely non-inavasive alternative for some fibroid patients. Dr. Neil Khilnani joined the faculty at Cornell in 1992 after he completed his training in Radiology and subsequently in Interventional Radiology at The Columbia Presbyterian Medical Center and The College of Physicians and Surgeons of Columbia University. Dr. Khilnani has his office at Cornell Vascular located at 416 East 55th Street (between Sutton Place and First Avenue). To schedule a consultation please call 212.752.7999.
