MedStar-Georgetown University Hospital is highly respected for their neurosurgery program. There are approximately 100 to 120 neurosurgical cases per month (4 to 6 cases per day). There is a full range of neurosurgery cases which include spinal surgery, skull base surgery, cerebrovascular surgery, pediatric neurosurgery, and functional surgery including deep brain stimmulation. Two months of clinical neuro-anesthesia is the minimum requirement which takes place during the CA-1 and CA-2 years. The CA-1 rotation will focus on basic intracranial and spine surgeries, while CA-2 rotation involves more complex intracranial surgeries, such as aneurysm clipping and awake craniotomies. Additional advanced experience in neuro-anesthesia is available as part of the Advanced Clinical Track elective at Georgetown University Hospital or Washington Hospital Center.
