Fellowships

Because of the large number of operations performed by the members of the NYU Langone Neurosurgery Department, clinical fellowships may be offered in the following fields, under the direction of the faculty member indicated:

  • Spine surgery (Dr. Anthony Frempong-Boadu)
  • Stereotaxis/radiosurgery (Dr. John Golfinos & Dr. Kondziolka)
  • Pediatric neurosurgery (Dr. Jeffrey Wisoff)
  • Endovascular surgery (Dr. Howard Riina)
  • Peripheral nerve surgery (Dr. Stephen Russell)
  • Epilepsy surgery (Dr. Werner Doyle)

All fellowships are offered with the understanding that residency training in the operating room is prioritized, and that NYU neurosurgery residents always have “first refusal” for operative cases.

In addition, the Department of Neurosurgery offers the following fellowships on an ongoing basis:

  • International Visiting Fellowship with Dr. Jafar Jafar through the World Federation of Neurosurgical Societies (WFNS). Fellowship information.
  • Pediatric Neurosurgery-Intra- and Postresidency
