Overview

Dr. Zada is a board certified neurosurgeon and nationally recognized expert in brain and pituitary tumor surgery as well as a variety of endoscopic and minimally invasive neurosurgical techniques. He is an Assistant Professor of Neurosurgery at the Keck School of Medicine of USC with associate appointments in the Departments of Otolaryngology and Internal Medicine. He is the Co-Director of the Keck USC Pituitary Center, Co-Director of the USC Radiosurgery Center, and Director of the USC Endoscopic Skull Base Surgery Program. He has a keen clinical and academic interest in brain and skull base tumor surgery, and has published over 100 peer-reviewed articles on various neurosurgical topics, mostly relating to brain and pituitary tumors as well as endoscopic skull base surgery. He authored and edited the textbook entitled “The Atlas of Sellar and Parasellar Lesions”. He directs a comprehensive neuro-endoscopic program including endoscopic skull base/pituitary surgery, exoscopic channel (BrainPath) surgery, and intraventricular neuro-endoscopy. He co-directs the USC Radiosurgery Center and performs both Gamma Knife and CyberKnife Radiosurgery.
