At Johns Hopkins, we have a long-standing tradition of delivering the best neurosurgical care. We push the frontiers of discovery forward in an effort to develop new and more effective therapies. We strive to bring scientific research and discovery into clinical services to improve the lives of our patients. Each day, our neurosurgeons work to address the most difficult medical questions: how to diagnose, treat and prevent the devastating disorders of the neurological system. We are driven by the needs of our patients and the promise of discovery. Thank you for your partnership.

  

How Your Gift Helps the Department of Neurosurgery

The concept of Neurosurgery was founded at Johns Hopkins. When Harvey Cushing became the first physician to surgically—and successfully—remove a human brain tumor, he single-handedly ushered in the field of modern neurosurgery. Cushing not only revolutionized surgical techniques, he also introduced the Hunterian Laboratory where students and residents practiced surgery and conducted research.

More than a century later, many of the surgical concepts and discoveries founded by the forefathers of Neurosurgery continue to help pioneer tremendous advances. Today, the Johns Hopkins Department of Neurosurgery is one of the largest clinical departments in the world and has been consistently recognized as one of the top programs in the country. For generations, the Department has actively pursued ground-breaking research, teaching techniques, and continues to improve patient care. We invite you to partner with the Department of Neurosurgery on our quest of discovery and to help us find the next treatment. With your help, we can continue to make major strides in advancing our research and providing a better quality of life for our patients.
