Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine

Department of Neurological Surgery


The faculty members of Department of Neurological Surgery at Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine believe that research plays a critical role in the advancement of care. Our research leads to advanced neurosurgical interventions in an atmosphere dedicated to continued scientific evaluation and innovation. The breadth and depth of clinical and scholarly activities reflect unparalleled expertise in every area of neurosurgery, no matter how complex and life threatening.

Discoveries and techniques contributed by our faculty are often applied in broader practice throughout the world. The knowledge derived from our ongoing research promises future benefit in alleviating the impact of debilitating neurologic illness and injury.

Research Community Involvement

The department’s faculty members serve on numerous editorial boards, regularly contribute to scientific journals, and frequently lecture at local, regional, national, and international forums to scientific and lay audiences. Department faculty are leaders in the dissemination of scientific information to neurosurgeons, including editing major textbooks in the field, writing the Science Times column in the journal Neurosurgery, and directing the national Research Update in Neuroscience for Neurosurgeons (RUNN Course), held annually at the Marine Biology Laboratory in Woods Hole, Massachusetts.
