Department of Neurological Surgery

Neurological Surgery

The Department of Neurological Surgery currently has 15 full-time faculty. The teaching faculty are dedicated to the concept of subspecialty expertise. Each of the faculty has one or more areas of special clinical interest that serve as a resource for secondary and tertiary neurological care as well as role models for the future careers of our neurosurgical trainees. The efforts of the faculty are centered at four USC teaching hospitals: Keck Hospital of USC, USC Norris Comprehensive Cancer Center, Children's Hospital of Los Angeles and LAC+USC Medical Center.
