About Bizhan Aarabi, MD

Toggle accordion item

I have always been fascinated with the human body and the brain. I remember in third-grade I dissected a bird looking for its internal organs, especially its brain. As I grew older, that interest in the brain only grew stronger, and I decided to make studying and treating the brain my career.

I treat patients with severe, traumatic head or spine injuries at the R Adams Cowley Shock Trauma Center. The sophisticated technology of this world-renown program allows us to assess conditions quickly and make life-saving decisions.

With my team of nurse practitioners and residents, we help patients through what can be one of the scariest times in their lives.

We may monitor patients for several days, and, if needed, perform surgery. For traumatic brain injuries, we are prepared to perform surgery immediately. For spinal injuries, the window is 11 hours. 

Both traumatic brain injuries and traumatic spinal cord injuries are our focuses of research in the Department of Neurosurgery's Neurotrauma Division. For the past 20 years, we have published nearly 40 papers, which have received a high number of citations. We are funded by the Department of Defense and Industry who have requested us to participate in randomized clinical trials.

You can browse my publications on PubMed.

We have participated in several clinical trials, including:

  • Stem Cell in SCI
  • North American Clinical Trial Network (NACTN registry)
  • CORBIT (supported by NIH)
  • RISCIS (supported by AO Spine)
