Our Department has developed a growing regional neurosurgery practice which is staffed by three full time faculty members who live and practice in the beautiful finger lakes region of Upstate New York near Rochester. These three faculty members live in the Ithaca - Elmira - Corning region and practice either at Cayuga Medical Center in Ithaca, NY or at the Arnot Ogden Medical Center in Elmira, NY. We are developing an integrated practice between these two locations which will allow us to provide the best patient care and to provide a satisfying career focus for our regional faculty. These faculty are valued members of our Department and while the majority of their practices are regional in nature, all faculty are encouraged to participate in selected Departmental events including our quarterly Departmental retreats, QA and regional strategic planning meetings held in either Rochester, Ithaca or Elmira. Interested faculty may participate more actively in Departmental education, clinical and research programs as dictated by their personal career interests.
