Patient Care People Give

Launched in January 2018, the Department of Neurosurgery is building an advanced academic, clinical care, teaching and research program that advances Dell Medical School’s mission to revolutionize how people get and stay healthy. By contributing to the discoveries and innovations taking place across The University of Texas at Austin, the department aims to make a difference for people in Central Texas and beyond who are wrestling with neurological conditions.

John S. Kuo, M.D., Ph.D., an internationally known neurosurgeon-scientist who specializes in brain tumors, leads the department and also serves as the surgical director of the Mulva Clinic for the Neurosciences.
