An academic level I trauma center in a large metropolitan city in the Midwest is recruiting a spine-focused neurosurgeon. The new neurosurgeon will see the full breadth of spine cases including complex instrumentation for degenerative, trauma, tumors, and scoliosis cases. The department is undergoing a strategic growth and development which embraces an outstanding clinical and academic career opportunity. The neurosurgeon will practice in an integrated and collaborative department that includes neurosurgeons, spine orthopedic surgeons, neuro-intensivists and medical spine/pain providers.
The trauma center is a teaching affiliate of a university, and trains residents from local neurosurgery residency programs, spine fellows and medical students. The Department of Neurosurgery provides strong support for a diverse clinical practice, specialty focus and research interests. Clinical and bench research interests are welcome. All hospital staff hold faculty appointment at the university. Academic rank will be commensurate with qualifications and experience.
Serving as the area’s most experienced and busiest Level I trauma center, it is certified as a Comprehensive Stroke Center. It is redesigning its campus with an innovative transformation plan to exceed the ever-changing needs of our patients and community programs. This billion-dollar transformation is the largest public construction project in the region and one of the largest in the nation. By 2023, the new hospital tower will be home to 270 private rooms with additional state-of-the art facilities, population health initiatives, as well as a re-imagined community.
