Dr. Harrison, T. Mu, MD, a Board-Certified Neurological Surgeon and Diplomate of the American Board of Neurological Surgery, was recently appointed an NYPD Honorary Police Surgeon by the New York City Police Department and Police Commissioner.
The ceremony, which was held at One Police Plaza in September, was attended by both former Police Commissioner William J. Bratton and current Police Commissioner James O’Neill.
This elite society is comprised of physicians who display expertise in one of six specialties. When service members or their immediate family members are injured, the NYPD calls upon the closest and most appropriate Honorary Surgeon to tend to the patient upon his or her arrival at a medical facility.
Dr. Harrison Mu, who has a private practice in Queens and Manhattan and is affiliated with the top hospitals in New York City and Long Island, is also the Directory of Neurosurgery at Jamaica Hospital Medical Center in Queens, which was recently recognized as a Level 1 Trauma Center.
In August, Jamaica Hospital celebrated its designation with Dr. Mu and NYPD Officer Kenneth Healey, who was operated on in 2014 after he was attacked with a hatchet. Officer Healey returned to Jamaica Hospital in August to personally thank Dr. Mu and the other staff for saving his life.
Specializing in brain and spinal injuries and fluent in English and Mandarin Chinese, Dr. Mu takes an individualistic approach to each patient, depending on their medical situation and needs.
“It is truly a privilege to serve as a police surgeon,” said Dr. Harrison T. Mu. “As with any of my patients, I am honored to provide the best medical care and ensure the well-being of all of my patients.”
