THE DIVISION OF NEUROSURGERY

The Division of Neurosurgery provides quality care for its patients at Howard University Hospital. Its faculty provides daily teaching rounds and weekly neurosurgical conferences for its house staff and students. Monthly neuropathology and mortality and morbidity conferences allow for thorough investigation of each disease process. Emphasis is placed on the management of acute head and spinal cord injuries, critical care, disc disease, subarachnoid hemorrhage, peripheral nerve injuries, and the management of increased intracranial pressure. Neurosurgery Clinics allow the residents generous exposure to diagnostic analysis, management, and follow-up of patients who present with a wide variety of neurological diseases.
