About

Bio

Dr. Frankel completed medical school at NYU School of Medicine in 1992 and completed neurosurgery training at Emory University Department of Neurosurgery. He has been in practice since 1999, caring for patients with surgical disorders of the spine and brain. In that time his dedication to his profession has made him one of the most experienced brain and spine surgeons in this highly demanding field.  However, his academic and research accomplishments are only a part of what makes Dr. Frankel a renowned surgeon.  The other part is his compassion for his patients.  Dr. Frankel is committed to achieving the best outcome for each patient based on their individual needs.
