Allan D. Levi, M.D., Ph.D. Professor and Chairman
Welcome to the UHealth Department of Neurological Surgery at the University of Miami Miller School of Medicine. Our faculty and staff continuously aim to deliver the highest standard of patient care. Here you will learn about our internationally recognized clinical and research programs. Our comprehensive and innovative spine service includes the latest surgical technologies such as minimally invasive spine, robotics and complex spinal reconstructions. The majority of our spinal cord and spine research is powered by the groundbreaking research of our world-renowned scientists and investigators who work within The Miami Project to Cure Paralysis. Our cranial neurosurgeons perform minimally invasive, endoscopic and skull base approaches to resect both benign and malignant tumors of the brain and collaborate with UHealth Otolaryngologists and Sylvester Comprehensive Cancer Center’s Radiation Oncologists to provide multidisciplinary care. Basic science and clinical trials research is conducted by our faculty at the UM Brain Tumor Initiative in collaboration with the Sylvester Comprehensive Cancer Center. Our top-notch vascular and endovascular colleagues can cure vascular diseases with either open or catheter based approaches. Finally, our functional, neuro–trauma, peripheral nerve and pediatric services are also featured. Our experienced faculty participates in clinical trials, publishes peer-reviewed articles and operates one of the largest neurosurgical training programs in the country. I invite you to learn more.
