Boasting brand new, state-of-the-art facilities, and a new Chair of Neurosurgery; exciting programmatic developments are underway at this academic medical center! The program has welcomed additional new leadership, including a new Chair of Neurology.
Due to a departure, the University is excited to welcome an academic-minded pediatric neurosurgeon to their children’s hospital. With an average of 80 cases per year, there is plenty of room for growth, as well as the opportunity to supplement patient volume with adult cases, if desired. Pediatric epilepsy interests would be particularly well supported. The new hire and projected growth plans have the full support of the medical group. Additionally, research interests are welcome and can be supported with protected time, with on-going research focused on neurosurgical oncology and minimally invasive spine techniques.
