Dr. Elad Levy is Professor of Neurosurgery and Radiology, L. Nelson Hopkins, MD Chairman of the Department of Neurological Surgery, Jacobs School of Medicine at Biomedical Sciences, at State University of New York at Buffalo. In 2017 he was appointed as one of 12 National Directors to the American Board of Neurological Surgery. In 2018 he was appointed Secretary to the Congress of Neurological Surgeons (CNS) Executive Committee and appointed to the 2018 American Association of Neurological Surgeons (AANS) Ethics Committee for a two year term. His most recent award in 2018 was receiving the “2018 Drake Lectureship” at the CV Section at CNS. Dr. Levy has a national and global reputation in the field of neurovascular disease, and has co-authored over 300 peer-reviewed publications, including several in the New England Journal of Medicine. He has also co-authored many published books in neurovascular disease, his most recent being “Decision Making in Neurovascular Disease” Thieme Publishers, May 1, 2018.
Dr. Levy is also the Co-Director, Gates Stroke Center and Cerebrovascular Surgery at Kaleida Health, Director of Endovascular Stroke Treatment and Research Medical Director of Neuroendovascular Services at Gates Vascular Institute (GVI). He has been a primary investigator in several clinical international research studies on carotid artery revascularization and stents, and served as the US Principle Investigator for the SWIFT PRIME trial published in the New England Journal of Medicine. Additionally, he has trained several physicians in using complex endovascular neurosurgical techniques, who now hold leadership positions in academic institutions in the United States and around the globe.
Prior to his professorship at the University, Dr. Levy graduated from Dartmouth College and received his Doctor of Medicine degree with distinction from George Washington University. He completed a surgical internship and his neurosurgical residency at the University of Pittsburgh and his fellowship at the University at Buffalo. He also received his MBA from Northeastern University in 2013. Since becoming the Chairman at the University of Buffalo Neurosurgery, he has more than doubled the size of the faculty, one of the largest academic groups in New York State.
In 2011, Dr. Levy spearheaded a local non-profit organization called PUCCS (Program for Understanding Childhood Concussion and Stroke). Dr. Levy, who serves as president and founder, has led the organization in raising nearly $500,000, which has been used to fund concussion research and education in the Western New York area.
