For Patients

The Department of Neurological Surgery at the University of Pittsburgh has created a unique environment where “centers of excellence” flourish. In this model, neurosurgical subspecialists devote time to research and patient care in focused areas. The use of centers of excellence has strengthened neurosurgery at the University of Pittsburgh and facilitated attainment of our mission.
