Welcome New Columbia Neurosurgeon, Dr. Sameer A. Sheth
We are pleased to announce the addition of neurosurgeon Dr. Sameer A. Sheth to our Department. Dr. Sheth received both his MD and PhD in Neuroscience at UCLA School of Medicine and then completed his neurosurgery residency and fellowship at Massachusetts General Hospital and Harvard Medical School. He will be joining Dr. Guy McKhann and Dr. Neil A. Feldstein in the Epilepsy Center and Dr. Guy McKhann in the Movement Disorders Center.
In addition to his specialty in the treatment of epilepsy and movement disorders, Dr. Sheth also holds expertise in the treatment of brain tumors, trigeminal neuralgia, brain trauma, and certain psychiatric disorders. Among the many techniques at his disposal are stereotactic neurosurgery, deep brain stimulation, ablative techniques, awake brain mapping, electrode recordings, computer-guided navigation, and microsurgery.
“We are so delighted to welcome Dr. Sameer Sheth to our Neurosurgery faculty here at Columbia, and to the medical staff of New York Presbyterian Hospital,” says Dr Robert Solomon, Chair of the Department of Neurosurgery. “Sameer recently finished his training at the Massachusetts General Hospital, and is one of the most exciting new faces in the academic neurosurgery world. He is clearly one of the most outstanding and promising young neurosurgeon/scientists in the field of functional neurosurgery. He is already working on expanding the indications for deep brain stimulation for movement disorders, psychiatric diseases, and epilepsy. Besides his clinical expertise, Sameer is investigating the functional organization and structure of the human brain. His recent publications in Nature, the Journal of Neuroscience, and Cerebral Cortex exemplify the high quality of his research endeavors. He was recently awarded a K12 grant from the NINDS, a further indication of the scientific community’s recognition of his potential as one of the future leaders in our field.”
