World-class neurosurgeons serve as faculty educators for the Department of Neurological Surgery at Indiana University School of Medicine. These teaching physicians and medical scientists also conduct basic science research that translate to advances in neurological surgery. The expertise of IU School of Medicine’s clinical and research faculty ensures that MD students as well as residents, fellows, graduate students and postdocs benefit from outstanding real-world learning experiences.
The neurological surgeons that serve as faculty at IU School of Medicine treat pediatric and adult problems of the brain, spine and peripheral nerves using the best-known neurological treatments for brain and spinal tumors, skull base tumors, pituitary tumors, epilepsy, seizure disorders, intracranial aneurysms, intracranial arteriovenous malformations, carotid occlusive disease, head injury and spinal problems. These physicians routinely conduct spinal instrumentation, non-invasive and minimally invasive programs, including stereotactic surgery, pallidotomies for Parkinson’s disease, radiosurgery using the gamma knife, endoscopy and glycerol injections for trigeminal neuralgia.
