    Neurosurgeon Ty Olson, MD, joined Monmouth Medical Center from the Neurological Institute of New York at Columbia University Medical Center, where he completed a fiveyear residency in neurosurgery.

    He earned his medical degree from Duke University Medical School, Durham, N.C., and a bachelor’s degree in biological sciences from Stanford University, Stanford, CA. Dr. Olson holds board certification from the American Board of Neurological Surgery and is a member of the North American Skull Base Society, the American Association of Neurological Surgeons and the Congress of Neurological Surgeons.

    Among his special interests is brain mapping, a highly specialized surgery known as “awake brain surgery” for deep lesions in the brain. Through brain mapping, neurosurgeons contour eloquent areas related to necessary brain functions by placing electrodes on various parts of the brain stem and conduct various tests to identify the eloquent areas to “contour out” during surgery.
