Neurological Surgery Visiting Professorships

The Department of Neurological Surgery in the OHSU School of Medicine hosts annual visiting professors outside of our three named lectures (Raaf, Gallo and Paxton).  Each year we select a neurosurgeon from a different sub-specialty who embodies the highest standards of professional and personal accomplishment. It is our goal to invite national leaders who help exemplify our department vision of leading neurosurgical care through innovation.
