Neurosurgery

The aim of the Department of Neurosurgery is to provide state-of-the-art care to patients with neurosurgical disorders in an academic and teaching environment.

All branches of modern neurosurgery, including vascular surgery and pediatric neurosurgery, are practiced in the university-affiliated hospitals. The teaching of undergraduate students emphasizes the recognition of the most common injuries and illnesses of the central nervous system with an elaboration of the appropriate diagnostic workup and the subsequent surgical procedures. The postgraduate education consists of a fully approved seven year neurosurgical residency. Teaching is carried out in each of the affiliated hospitals — Buffalo General Medical Center, Oishei Children’s Hospital, Millard Fillmore Suburban Hospital, Erie County Medical Center and Roswell Park Comprehensive Cancer Center.

There are a number of active research laboratories in the department, including endovascular, tumor biology, and movement disorders. Opportunities for clinical research exist as well.
