Message from the Department Chair, Dr. Justin S. Cetas, MD, PhD

It is my great privilege to be the new chair of the Department of Neurosurgery at the University of Arizona in Tucson.  I am honored to join this immensely talented group of individuals, all of whom are commited to providing the highest standard of neurosurgical care and support to patients and their families.

The Department of Neurosurgery is a growing program with an excellent foundation.  We are engaged in cutting-edge clinical trials in movement disorders and neuro-oncology.  Additionally, we have an exceptional team of doctors with expertise in Skull Base, Cerebrovascular/Stroke, Spine and Functional neurosurgery.

Going forward, my goal is to continue to elevate this department and to enable an environment that provides the best possible care for patients with all types of neurosurgical conditions.  The first part of this plan is to hire more faculty and increase the number of physicians sub-specialized within specific areas of neurosurgery.  This will enable each faculty member to focus on their unique expertise and deliver exceptional results.

The Department of Neurosurgery, we are committed to improving the lives of our patients through clinical care, research and training.  We aim to be instrumental in developing the next generation of practitioners who will carry on the mission of driving innovation and improving neurosurgical care.

I look forward to working for and with this department.
