Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine

Department of Anesthesiology

Neurosurgical Anesthesiology Fellowship

The Neurosurgical Anesthesiology Fellowship is designed to provide advanced clinical training in the provision of anesthesia for the surgical and endovascular management of complex intracranial disease and the surgical treatment of complex acute and chronic spine disorders. Fellows will have ample experience performing regional anesthesia and sedation for awake craniotomies. Furthermore, fellows are provided an in-depth experience in intraoperative evoked potential monitoring. In addition to a rotation in the neurosurgical intensive care unit, fellows can arrange for individual electives in anesthesia for pediatric neurosurgery.

The Department of Anesthesiology works very closely with the Department of Neurological Surgery, which is internationally recognized as a center of excellence in the surgical treatment of complex intracranial and spine disorders. Faculty in the Department of Neurological Surgery are affiliated with various Northwestern Medicine centers which are highly regarded for their advanced clinical and research endeavors, both regionally and nationally — the Robert H. Lurie Comprehensive Cancer Center, the Parkinson's Disease and Movement Disorders Center, and the Northwestern University Comprehensive Epilepsy Center.
