Neurosurgery Chair Dr. Robert Solomon to Give 2015 Luessenhop Lecture


Columbia Neurosurgery Chair, Dr. Robert Solomon will give the popular Luessenhop Lecture this year at the Annual Joint Cerebrovascular Section meeting.

The meeting will be held Feb. 9-10, 2015 at the Loews Vanderbilt Hotel in Nashville, Tennessee.

Dr. Solomon’s talk will include a multitude of case studies including patients treated for aneurysms, arteriovenous malformations, and carotid stenosis who presented with double vision, seizures, brain hemorrhage, migraine headaches, and strokes.

The American Association of Neurological Surgeons (AANS) and the Congress of Neurological Surgeons (CNS) introduced the yearly Leussenhop lecture in 1998 to honor Dr. Alfred J. Luessenhop.

The late Dr. Luessenhop was a Washington D.C. neurosurgeon, whose innovations in the 1960s marked the beginnings of intravascular brain surgery.

A long list of well-renowned neurosurgeons have given this lecture over the years, and we are thrilled that our own chairman Dr. Solomon has been chosen this year.

Dr. Robert Solomon is the Byron Stookey Professor and Chairman of the Department of Neurosurgery at Columbia University Medical Center/New York Presbyterian Hospital. He has specialized in the surgical treatment of cerebrovascular diseases since 1986, and he has operated on more cerebral aneurysms and arteriovenous malformations than any surgeon in the Tri-State area.
