Shaping The Future Of Neurosurgery

Through the focused efforts of our practice neurosurgeons at Carolina Neurosurgery & Spine Associates, and coordination with Carolinas Medical Center, a local neurosurgical residency program is now a reality. This subspecialty-based program is located at Carolinas Medical Center in Charlotte and the very first resident will begin training this summer. Surgeons from Carolina Neurosurgery & Spine Associates will serve as the core faculty and represent a full range of subspecialty areas, including spine surgery, vascular neurosurgery, endovascular surgery, skull base neurosurgery, pediatric neurosurgery, pain and functional neurosurgery, peripheral nerve surgery, radiosurgery, epilepsy surgery, and neurotrauma.

"The faculty will definitely be a strength of the program," said Assistant Program Director Scott Wait, MD. "Our neurosurgeons are experienced in the business of medicine as well as the science of neurosurgery."

The goal of the program is to create a unique learning opportunity for residents who will become future leaders in the field of neurosurgery. 

"I believe we're positioned to develop one of the premier residency programs for neurological surgery in the country," said Residency Program Director and Carolina Neurosurgery & Spine Associates neurosurgeon Anthony Asher, MD, FACS.
