Dr. Douglas J. Fox, MD

Dr. Fox completed his medical studies and neurosurgery residency at Washington University, MO, where he served as Chief Resident, then continued his studies as a Fellow at the Barrow Neurological Institute in Phoenix, Arizona. Dr Fox completed a fellowship in Cerebrovascular and skull base surgery and a fellowship in complex spinal surgery.

Dr. Fox's clinical interests include cerebrovascular neurosurgery, skull base surgery, and complex spinal surgery. Dr. Fox has published widely and maintains an active research interest in cerebrovascular physiology and the development of new surgical technologies. Recent research projects focused on functional mapping of the brain, a technique that provides neurosurgeons with evidence of areas critical for brain function. Such methodologies further the ability of neurosurgeons to perform aggressive surgery in patients with brain tumors, with significantly reduced risk of damaging brain function.
