Chair, Department of Neurosurgery

Professor, Neurosurgery

The Department of Neurosurgery at Temple University School of Medicine is a full service clinical and academic program that provides contemporary treatment for patients with a broad spectrum of brain, spine, movement disorder, and congenital diseases. Our neurosurgeons subspecialize in all major areas of neurosurgery, thereby providing sophisticated care and successful treatment that can only be achieved through years of experience treating the same type of disease. Advanced image-guidance, Gamma Knife and Synergey S as well as other systems help us accomplish the safe and successful treatment of some of the most complex brain tumors, aneurysms, carotid endarterectomies, spine diseases, and functional neurosurgery for movement disorders such as Parkinson's Disease. We treat patients with a broad understanding of all aspects of their disease and the entire spectrum of treatment options.


Our Department has a long standing tradition of providing the finest neurosurgical care possible. As well as training a select group of academic neurosurgeons in the latest techniques and advances available to treat a multitude of neurosurgical conditions.
