About me

Gary Nesbit, M.D. is a Professor in the Charles T.

Following Medical School at the University of Minnesota, Diagnostic Radiology residency and Neuroradiology fellowship at the Mayo Clinic, he served in the Navy at the Naval Medical Center, San Diego. He joined OHSU as an Interventional Neuroradiology fellow and Radiology faculty in 1994, was Neuroradiology division chief from 1996-2006, and has practiced a combination of pediatric and adult diagnostic and interventional neuroradiology throughout his 30-year career, 27 of which are at OHSU.

Dr. Nesbit has published over 130 peer-reviewed manuscripts in both disciplines and recently published a chapter on pediatric cerebrovascular disease in the Handbook of Clinical Neurology. He has been invited as a speaker regionally, nationally, and internationally on a variety of topics. He has also served as a principle or co-investigator on numerous trials in conjunction with the Oregon Stroke Center and other divisions of the Departments of Neurology, Neurosurgery, Otorhinolaryngology, and Radiology and continues to enjoy the collaborative environment at OHSU.

Dr. Nesbit’s teaching has earned him critical acclaim. He received the James MacMillan fellowship award during his residency in 1990, the Golden Ray Award for teacher of the year at the Naval Medical Center San Diego in 1993, the Silver Hammer Award for teaching excellence in Neurology at OHSU in 1997 and 1998, and the Outstanding Teacher of the year award in Diagnostic Radiology in 2000. He has served as fellowship director of the diagnostic neuroradiology fellowship, director of the interventional neuroradiology fellowship, and director of faculty development for Diagnostic Radiology. Nesbit currently serves on the OHSU Institutional Promotion and Tenure Committee.

Nesbit enjoys adventures with his wife, a diagnostic neuroradiologist at OHSU, and enjoys his family, flying, kayaking, hiking, mountain biking, woodworking and skiing.
