Dr. Moliterno graduated Phi Beta Kappa from the University of Florida and went on to receive her medical degree from the College of Medicine, graduating with Honors in Research. She completed her internship and residency training in neurosurgery at Yale New Haven Hospital where she served as Chief Resident. While at Yale, Dr. Moliterno developed an interest in Neuro-Oncology and devoted her research efforts to implementing clinical trials for brain tumor patients at Weill Cornell Medical College in New York City. Following graduation from residency, Dr. Moliterno completed a one-year clinical fellowship in neurosurgical oncology specializing in surgery for brain and spinal cord tumors at the Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center, also in New York City. While her clinical interest is in the surgical management of all types of benign and malignant brain tumors (i.e. gliomas, GBMs, meningiomas, etc), her particular expertise is in performing specialized surgeries for complex tumors located in highly functioning brain (i.e. speech and motor areas). In addition, Dr. Moliterno surgically treats tumors of the skull base, such as vestibular schwannomas or acoustic neuromas, as well as other non-oncologic conditions including trigeminal neuralgia and hemifacial spasm. She is also credentialed for performing gamma knife radiosurgery. Her current research interest is translational and focused on the development of personalized and precise oncologic care.
