Department of Neurosurgery

The Yale Department of Neurosurgery is committed to delivering exceptional patient care, the pursuit of science to improve patient outcomes and to training future leaders in the field. Our highly specialized physicians, scientists, practitioners and staff are devoted to providing the highest standard of patient care for all neurosurgical conditions of the central (i.e. brain, spinal cord) and peripheral nervous systems, as well as the blood vessels supplying them. We offer the latest in cutting edge treatment in a state-of-the-art environment that is simply unsurpassed in terms of quality, infrastructure and level of compassionate, patient-focused care. Our neurosurgeons are world-renowned experts who are highly sub-specialized, such that each one focuses on very specific areas of neurosurgery and related conditions, leading to better outcomes for patients and their families.

Our neurosurgeons provide neurosurgical services at hospitals across Connecticut and beyond, transferring patients with more complex conditions, when necessary, to New Haven. More routine procedures and follow-up can be done closer to home for convenience.

Quick Contact Information

We treat all patients and all neurosurgical conditions, gladly accepting newly diagnosed patients or those who have been previously treated elsewhere. We readily respond to referrals from patients or physicians. And we allow for the rapid transfer of patients from other hospitals with one phone call from a referring physician through our Y-Access hotline.
