The Department of Neurosurgery maintains a robust clinical practice with a national and international referral base and reputation. Our clinical service includes 20 staff neurosurgeons who are engaged in all clinical sub-specialties of neurosurgery. Our research team is led by a very productive group of clinically active neurosurgeons, neuro-oncologists, surgeon scientists, and seven dedicated PhD researchers, and has been awarded more than $21 million in grant support. The internationally recognized Preston Robert Tisch Brain Tumor Center, recognized as a Program of Distinction within Duke Health, is housed within the department, as is our neurosurgical global health initiative. Our comprehensive residency training program is among the best in the country, and fellowships are offered in six multidisciplinary areas, including a recently added pediatric neurosurgery fellowship.
