Our multidisciplinary approach includes frequent collaboration with neuroendovascular surgery, neurology, neuroscience, otolaryngology, orthopedics, psychiatry, radiology, critical care, oncology, endocrinology, pediatrics, neuro-oncology, neurotrauma, and more.

Residents are vital members of our dynamic health care team, providing compassionate patient care while advancing medicine through unrivaled education, research, and outreach in the many diverse communities we serve. We are privileged to offer our residents operative volume and experience in every aspect of modern neurosurgery, including endovascular, peripheral nerve, and functional neurosurgery.
