Patient & Visitor InformationContact Us
  • Neurosurgery Services

  • Physicians

  • All of our doctors are faculty members at The Warren Alpert Medical School of Brown University. In that capacity, they conduct research and train residents.

    Each doctor in the Neurosurgery Foundation practices medicine and makes judgments independently when caring for patients. Yet, patients enjoy the benefits of a highly specialized team in that we consult with each other, attend to one another's patients when needed, and always have someone on call to handle emergencies.

    What Makes Our Team Special

    Our patients gain more than a neurosurgeon; they gain an entire health care team. You may receive care not only from doctors, but also from residents, physician assistants and nurse practitioners.

    • Residents are fully licensed physicians receiving advanced training in their chosen specialty. Neurosurgery Foundation doctors help mentor residents through the approved residency training program in neurosurgery offered by Rhode Island Hospital and the Warren Alpert Medical School of Brown University.
    • Physician assistants are certified health-care practitioners who work with, and under the supervision of, one or more physicians. They receive two to four years of science training, followed by two to four years of medical course work and clinical training. Some pursue additional specialty training. Physician assistants may prescribe medications.
    • Nurse practitioners are registered nurses with additional training in assessing and managing common illnesses and injuries. Many have a master's degree. They may prescribe certain medications.

    Our collaborative approach enables us to match the level of care to each patient's needs. Team members communicate regularly with each other to coordinate your care.
