SKULL BASE FELLOWSHIP
The 12-month CAST accredited Skull Base Fellowship at LSU Health Shreveport is dedicated to providing exceptional training and experience in the performance of complex intracranial neurosurgery with an emphasis upon the application of skull base surgical techniques for tumors and vascular lesions. During the fellowship year, the fellow also actively participates in ongoing clinical research in skull base neurosurgery and is required to publish at least one paper. LEARN MORE
NEUROENDOVASCULAR SURGERY FELLOWSHIP
This is a 12-month fellowship that offers advanced clinical training in neuroendovascular intervention and care, as well as advanced research opportunities with specialty-trained, board-certified faculty members. The fellow will be exposed to a large number of cerebrovascular pathologies including embolization, extra-cranial and intracranial stents, thrombectomies, intracranial infusions, and angiography. This fellowship is based at the only Join Commission Certified Comprehensive and Primary Stroke Center in the tri-state area. The fellow will be fully integrated into the clinical neuroendovascular service and participate in inpatient and outpatient care in addition to performing a variety of neuroendovascular procedures. Given the nature of neuroendovascular work, this fellowship offers unique opportunities for interdisciplinary collaborations. Time throughout the fellowship will be allocated for participation in, or initiation of, clinical research projects (related to neuroimaging and endovascular surgery).
SPINAL NEUROSURGERY FELLOWSHIP
This is a 12-month fellowship that offers fellows advanced training and education in the neurosurgical management of diseases and deformities of the spine, including prevention, evaluation, diagnosis, and treatment (both medical and surgical) of the spine, spinal cord, surrounding soft tissues, nerves, and vascular structures. Fellows are offered a broad range of education and training in complex minimally invasive and robotic spine cases. With thousands of spine surgeries annually, fellows are afforded a wide variety and breadth of surgical training. As the leading tertiary spinal neurosurgery referral center in the area, fellows will treat the most complex spinal pathology, including revision surgery, spinal deformity, spinal cord tumors, and spinal infections. The Spine Fellow is directly mentored by Director of Complex Spinal Disorders and Vice-Chairman, Dr. Anthony Sin, in both inpatient and outpatient settings. Time throughout the fellowship will also be allocated for clinical and/or basic scientific research related to spinal neurosurgery. Fellows should produce at least one manuscript accepted for publication in a peerreviewed journal.
