Kaleb H. Yohay, MD

About Me

I am a pediatric neurologist who cares for children with brain tumors and neurofibromatosis. I also treat children with other cancers that affect the brain and spinal cord, and those with neurological complications of cancer treatment, such as seizures, headaches, cognitive impairment, and problems walking. I have a joint appointment at Weill Cornell Medical College.

In my research, I am studying the biology of neurofibromatosis to seek novel ways to deliver therapy to peripheral nerve sheath tumors. I am also developing clinical trials of new treatment approaches for neurofibromatosis.

I am active in teaching and direct the pediatric neurology residency training program at Weill Cornell Medical College. I have received awards for my teaching, including one from the American Academy of Neurology in 2008. One week every summer, I volunteer my time to work as a medical director for Camp New Friends, a summer camp for children with neurofibromatosis.

I enjoy working with children and their families and being able to provide them with care, education, and support. Understanding the biology of neurological diseases is an intellectual challenge, and I like working as part of a multidisciplinary team to make important treatment decisions. There are few places with a team of professionals who are as skilled and caring as the team at Memorial Sloan Kettering.
