Background

Dr. Eric Jackson specializes in the evaluation and treatment of patients with a broad range of neurosurgical disorders, including congenital malformations of the brain and spine, hydrocephalus (including endoscopic treatment), chiari malformation, craniosynostosis, spinal dysraphism/tethered cord, brain and spinal cord tumors, and traumatic brain injuries.

He serves as Member-at-Large for the American Association of Neurological Surgeons/Congress of Neurological Surgeons Joint Section on Pediatric Neurological Surgery, the largest pediatric neurosurgical organization in the nation.

  • He is the Principal Investigator for several multi-institution research studies, including:
  • Hydrocephalus Clinical Research Network: currently investigating endoscopic surgery vs shunting for the treatment of hydrocephalus in infants in a $10M randomized trial funded by the NIH
  • Park Reeves Syringomyelia Research Consortium
  • Advancing the treatment for pediatric craniopharyngioma, identifying biological targets for molecular therapy
  • A multi-institutional trial investigating a non-invasive eye tracking device for assessing increased intracranial pressure
