Long Island Neurosurgical and Pain Specialists


LINPS Overview:

Long Island Neurosurgical and Pain Specialists (LINPS) are board-certified neurosurgeons and interventional pain management specialists who explore non-surgical options before performing necessary surgery. Their patient success rate is unparalleled.

LINPS was established in 2000 by Kevin J. Mullins, MD, FAANS, FACS, the Chief of Neurological Surgery at Good Samaritan Hospital in West Islip and the Chairman of the Neuroscience Service Line at Catholic Health Services (CHS) of Long Island.

They have extensive diagnostic expertise, and employ state-of-the-art equipment in caring for their patients.

“As a medical professional and recent patient, I can honestly say that the doctors at LINPS are the most competent and compassionate I have ever come across.” – Andrea C.

“This group is a great bunch of doctors. I am amazed by the doctors’ compassion, how helpful the staff is, and how easy they make the process for their patients. I urge anyone suffering in pain or thinking about surgery to consult the doctors at LINPS.” – Kurt M.

“Dr. Mullins is the most caring, gentle doctor I have ever met. He  genuinely listens to you, and makes his patients feel very comfortable. Dr. Mullins operated on my spine for three herniated discs, which he fused together in Jan 2015.  Since then, I have more motion in my neck and NO pain or numbness down my left arm, hand, and neck. GOD BLESS DR. MULLINS and HIS HANDS.” – Brian M.
