The core faculty, supported by a team of joint faculty in neurology, radiology and neuropathology, and by a large roster of clinical part-time faculty, is critical to this highly successful program.

The breadth and balance of their expertise provides our residents with the opportunity to develop their general neurosurgical skills while gaining valuable experience in subspecialty areas. The combination of the faculty's diverse surgical experience, frequent clinical teaching, and an intensive program of research provide residents with the skills necessary to be outstanding contributors to their field.

Faculty members specialize in the treatment of various neurosurgical conditions, such as cerebrovascular disorders, brain tumors, skull base surgery, pediatric neurosurgery, degenerative spine disorders, trauma, movement disorders/epilepsy, acoustic neuromas, and peripheral nerve disorders.
