Department of Neurological Surgery

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.

As a cerebrovascular and skull base neurosurgeon, Dr. Steinberg specializes in treating brain aneurysms, moyamoya disease, brain and spinal AVMs and other vascular malformations, carotid artery disease, meningiomas, skull base tumors, stroke, and hereditary hemorrhagic telangiectasia.

Dr. Steinberg has practiced neurosurgery at Stanford for more than 31 years. He has pioneered microsurgical techniques to repair intracranial vascular malformations and certain aneurysms that were previously considered untreatable. He has also refined revascularization techniques for patients with cerebrovascular arterial occlusions, as well as moyamoya disease. He is leading novel clinical trials of stem cell therapy for stroke and spinal cord injury.
