    Bio

    Prior to joining ANS, Dr. Ronald Benitez was an Assistant Professor of Neurosurgery at Jefferson Medical College/ Thomas Jefferson University Hospital in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Dr. Benitez completed medical school at Georgetown University School of Medicine in Washington, DC and then completed his neurosurgical residency at Thomas Jefferson University Hospital. Dr. Benitez’s fellowship was done in cerebrovascular surgery and interventional neuroradiology. He is board certified in neurosurgery.

    Dr. Benitez is one of the few neurosurgeons who are specialized in both the surgical and endovascular management of cerebrovascular disease. The emergence of minimally invasive endovascular procedures has allowed many life threatening lesions to be treated with less risk than more traditional open surgery.

    Dr. Benitez has written and lectured extensively on cerebrovascular disease, presenting at national neurosurgical meetings. He recently authored one of the first papers describing a novel treatment for brain aneurysms with stenting. In addition to his work on developing endovascular procedures, Dr. Benitez is experienced in tumor surgery, especially skull based surgery and acoustic neuromas.
