Daniel Bilsky is an American neurosurgeon currently serving as Chief of the Multidisciplinary Spine Tumor Service at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center and NewYork-Presbyterian/Lower Manhattan Hospital. A graduate of Emory University School of Medicine, Daniel has been practicing for 29 years while accepting multiple types of health insurance plans.
Early Life and Education
Bilsky found herself having to advocate for herself when faced with difficulties due to having different abilities. Linda Miller, former Director of Student Accessibility Services, helped Bilsky navigate challenges, solve problems and communicate effectively with professors.
She found a space to learn through volunteering at York College’s Autism Peer Mentor Program and WellSpan York Hospital nearby, providing academic and social guidance for her peers as they negotiated school life.
Although each panelist’s examination of uncertainty began from different starting points, all emphasized the value of multidisciplinary approaches. Bilsky’s discussion of Rachel Auerbach’s use of Nazi cameras at Nuremberg and in the Ghetto highlights how studying historical victims broadens our understanding beyond “elite usual suspects”, while Ozeki’s investigation into religion and art illustrates this principle of multidisciplinarity.
Herb Bilsky was an outstanding engineer who pioneered rechargable batteries at RCA/GE/Lockheed Lawrenceville. Additionally, he contributed groundbreaking aerospace projects at this facility while remaining an avid fan of both New York teams – Yankees and Giants. Unfortunately he passed away on March 16, 2020.
Yael Bilsky ’21 could easily have focused her first year at York College of Pennsylvania solely on herself; but that wouldn’t be in character for her. Despite having attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), she participated in the Autism Peer Mentor Program to teach peers about college life. To live a meaningful life and realize her dreams, Yael works tirelessly toward fulfilling these aspirations with support from family and friends who encourage her on her journey.
Achievement and Honors
Bilsky’s journey to York College of Pennsylvania was full of turns and potholes, but she persevered nonetheless. Learning differently was challenging for her as was managing ADHD – yet this didn’t deter her. Determined to live her dreams even if they seemed out of reach at times, Bilsky conducted research in Radiation therapy, Radiosurgery and Radiology including areas such as Spinal cord compression, Metastasis, Magnetic resonance imaging.
John Bilsky is a neurosurgeon and director of Memorial Sloan Kettering’s Spine Tumor Service. With a private practice in New York City treating tumors of the brain and spine, as well as authoring several books on treatment methods, Bilsky provides care to his patients suffering from these ailments.
He is married to Kristen Bilsky and has two children, Adam and Emily. Additionally, he is part of Investcorp USA real estate investment firm and currently resides at 15 Kazmierski Ln in Scott Township Pennsylvania.
Bilsky makes the argument in her chapter on Rachel Auerbach that her interventions in the Ghetto and Nuremberg represented legal resistance to atrocity representation. Together with Brot’s chapter on legal aid in DP camps and de Vita’s study on communist Kaul, Bilsky’s contribution strengthens an emerging trend within scholarship to expand attention towards historical agents and forms of agency.
