Karen G. Hirsch, MD
Associate Professor of Neurology and, by courtesy, of Neurosurgery at the Stanford University Medical Center
Current Research and Scholarly Interests Dr. Karen G. Hirsch cares for critically ill patients with neurologic disorders in the intensive care unit and for patients with cerebrovascular disease in the inpatient stroke unit. Dr. Hirsch's research focuses on novel imaging techniques such as functional brain imaging in patients with cardiac arrest and traumatic brain injury. She also studies methods of non-invasive measurement of cerebral blood flow, oxygenation, and cerebrovascular autoregulation and how these parameters might be targeted to improve outcome in patients with neurologic injury. In the outpatient clinic, she sees patients with head injury, stroke and other neurovascular diseases in addition to patients who have been discharged from the neurological intensive care unit.
Resident in Neurosurgery
Bio Allen was born and raised in Irvine, California. He completed his undergraduate training at University of California, San Diego as part of the combined-degree Medical Scholars Program with a major in Economics. He then left California to attend Harvard Medical School where he earned his MD in 2014. His research interests include expanding indications for deep brain stimulation and neuromodulation, technology-driven minimally-invasive approaches to cranial and spinal neurosurgery, and quality improvement initiatives within clinical neurosurgery. In the Halpern Lab, Allen is utilizing advanced functional imaging (fMRI, DTI) to study the effects of functional neurosurgery and exploring the role of neuromodulation in addiction, OCD, and obesity in both animal models and humans. He has also completed an enfolded fellowship in complex spine surgery and has a clinical interest in spinal deformity surgery via both minimally invasive and open approaches.
Clinical Assistant Professor, Neurosurgery
Bio Dr. Hong specializes in the treatment of pediatric patients with neurosurgical conditions, with additional specialty training in the treatment of pediatric spinal disorders, including scoliosis. He completed his residency in his home state of Michigan at the Detroit Medical Center, and completed fellowship training at Rady Children's Hospital in San Diego, before becoming a part of Stanford Children's Health.
His clinical interests include brain tumors, epilepsy surgery, idiopathic scoliosis, Chiari malformation, vascular conditions, concussion, and will treat all other conditions within the specialty.
