The Department of Neurological Surgery

Welcome to the Department of Neurological Surgery at the George Washington University. We are one of three university-based neurosurgery departments located within the District of Columbia. We offer a full spectrum of neurosurgical services to our patients, with interdisciplinary approaches to all diseases of the spine, brain, and peripheral nervous system.

This website serves as a resource for learning about our neurosurgery department, our residency program, as well as useful information on neurosurgical disorders. We hope you find the information here helpful.
