Department Welcome

On behalf of the faculty, nurses, and staff, welcome to the website for the Department of Neurosurgery at Wayne State University School of Medicine

In this website, you will learn about our Department, comprising a team of talented physicians, scientists, nurses, and staff who are dedicated to providing the very best clinical neurosurgical care for disorders of the brain, spinal cord, and peripheral nervous system, as well as the blood vessels which support them.

We are committed to providing our patients with exemplary care, to teach our medical students to deliver superior treatment for complex neurosurgical conditions, and to nurture innovation and research.

Our highly skilled neurosurgeons have extensive experience in performing all neurosurgical procedures, including minimally invasive spinal surgery, microsurgery to treat brain tumors and intracranial aneurysms, as well as surgical treatments for stroke, epilepsy, and movement disorders such as Parkinson's disease. Likewise, we have an outstanding group of pediatric neurosurgeons that provides exceptional care to our younger patients.

The interaction between the Department's research and clinical teams enables us to rapidly translate research findings into new therapies and better approaches to patient care. Supported by National Institutes of Health funding, Veteran Association merit grants, private foundation grants, and philanthropy, our faculty have a rich tradition of performing excellent clinically relevant basic and translational research work and publishing in high impact journals.

As we look to the future, we remain committed to our mission to deliver world class, compassionate care to our patients today, and further the field of neurosurgery to help our patients tomorrow.
