Kaustubh Limaye, MD is board-certified in vascular neurology and fellowship trained in neuroendovascular surgery who specializes in management of subarachnoid hemorrhage, unruptured aneurysms, carotid stenosis, ischemic stroke and intracranial hemorrhage.
Dr. Limaye's belief – “the best way to learn is to teach” has been instrumental in him taking up teaching, since the days of being a house staff. His teaching skills have been well appreciated by medical students, residents and fellows at various medical schools that he has had the good fortune to be associated with. He has won the “Resident Teacher of the Year” and “Resident of the Year” awards at University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences primarily for teaching. At University of Iowa, Carver College of Medicine he was awarded the “Faculty Educator of the Year” and then a year later was awarded the prestigious “A.B. Baker Teacher Recognition Award” by the American Academy of Neurology. He continues to cherish both bedside clinical as well as classroom teaching equally and would continue to do so in future.
Another important aspect of a physician’s career trifecta is research. Dr. Limaye has authored and co-authored more than 50 peer-reviewed scientific publications (journal articles and book chapters) that have been published in some of highest impact factor journals in the field on Cerebrovascular Diseases, such as Stroke, Neurosurgery, Journal of Neuro Interventional Surgery and Journal of Neurosurgery. He serves as an Associate Editor for Frontiers in Neurology for the section of Endovascular and Interventional Neurology and has been an Ad-hoc reviewer for more than 12 academic journals. He has been invited as a panelist, moderator and speaker for local, national, and international meetings and has been invited to present his work at these meetings.
Lastly, and the most important of the trifecta--service! Dr. Limaye got interested in care of stroke patients from a personal inspiration--his grandfather. He saw what difference it makes with difficulties in triage, especially in developing countries. Inspired from his grandfather’s post stroke struggle, he decided to train as a vascular and an interventional neurologist/neuroendovascular surgeon so that he would be able to serve patients with life- threatening cerebrovascular diseases and has enjoyed doing so each and every day.
