Washington University in St. Louis Department of  Neurosurgery

Since 1919, the Washington University Department of Neurosurgery has had a strong tradition of clinical excellence, outstanding research and dynamic teaching. Our mission is to

  • Provide patients with superior neurosurgical care
  • Train residents, fellows and scientists so that they can be leaders in the fields of academic neurosurgery and neurosurgical research;
  • Conduct basic and clinical research to better understand the causes of neurological diseases so that we can apply this knowledge toward better diagnoses and treatments.

Our neurosurgeons provide surgical care at Barnes-Jewish Hospital, ranked 7th in the nation for adult neurology and neurosurgery by U.S. News & World Report in 2017-2018, and at St. Louis Children's Hospital, ranked #7 in the nation by U.S. News for pediatric neurosurgery in 2017-2018.
