Department of Neurosurgery


About Us


The Department of Neurosurgery at Baylor College of Medicine is committed to excellence in teaching, research, and patient care. We train residents to become highly skilled, compassionate and ethical neurosurgeons who continue to learn new aspects of neurosurgery throughout their careers and contribute to the development of neurosurgery in academic and/or clinical positions. The department’s research focus is on improving the understanding and treatment of central and peripheral nervous system disorders. Our surgeons provide the highest quality neurosurgical care for patients who have an illness or injury affecting the brain, spine or peripheral nerves.
