Dr. Theodore Schwartz, the David and Ursel Barnes Professor of Minimally Invasive Neurosurgery in the Department of Neurosurgery, Otolaryngology and Neuroscience, has been named chair of the editorial board for the Journal of Neurosurgery. Dr. Schwartz, who has served on the journal’s editorial board since 2013, assumes the new role effective today.
The Journal of Neurosurgery was founded in 1944 as the official publication of the American Association of Neurological Surgeons. Along with its more recent spin-offs (Journal of Neurosurgery: Pediatrics, Journal of Neurosurgery: Spine, and Neurosurgical Focus) the Journal of Neurosurgery is among the most respected journals in neurological surgery today, featuring original works in neurosurgery as well as studies in clinical neurophysiology, organic neurology, ophthalmology, radiology, pathology, and molecular biology.
Dr. Schwartz is among the nation’s leading neurological surgeons specializing in brain tumor and epilepsy surgery. He has been named to the lists of New York’s Super Doctors, Best Doctors in New York by New York magazine, America’s Top Surgeons, America’s Best Doctors, and America’s Best Doctors for Cancer. He is particularly known for advancing the use of state-of-the-art intraoperative technology, such as minimally invasive endoscopy, brain mapping, and intraoperative imaging, and has been invited to lecture at meetings around the world on the use of advanced endonasal surgery for pituitary tumors and other lesions of the skull base.
