Welcome to the Stanford Department of Neurosurgery
Comprised of 60 neurosurgeons and research faculty, and performing over 4000 neurosurgical operations covering the full spectrum of neurological conditions every year, we are consistently ranked among the best centers in the nation for neurosurgery. We are fortunate to have excellent facilities and the most technologically advanced equipment in the world to help us treat neurological diseases for both adult and pediatric patients. In addition, our hospitals offer the only Level 1 Trauma Center between San Francisco and San Jose, and our Stroke Center was the first in the nation to be certified as a comprehensive Stroke Center by The Joint Commission. These certifications recognize our hospitals as having state-of-the-art equipment, infrastructure, staffing and training to diagnose and treat patients with the most severe and complex cases. Together, we are driving forward the most innovative technologies in neurosurgery – from cutting-edge neuroscience research and clinical trials to the widespread clinical implementation of our discoveries.
