Aclan Dogan M.D.

  • (503) 494-4314
    • Associate Professor of Neurological Surgery, Division of Skull Base and Cerebrovascular School of Medicine
    • Head Neurological Surgery, Division of Skull Base and Cerebrovascular School of Medicine

Dr. Dogan is a neurosurgeon with expertise in cerebrovascular and skull base neurosurgery. He specializes in the treatment of problems and abnormalities of blood vessels in the brain and spinal cord, including aneurysms, arteriovenous malformations (AVMs), arteriovenous fistulas (AVFs), cavernous malformations (CMs), carotid stenosis, and complex brain tumors.

In 2001, Dogan joined OHSU as a skull base instructor and in 2002 entered the OHSU neurological surgery residency program. Dr. Dogan joined the faculty of neurological surgery in July 2006.
