MedStar Neuroscience Center

As the Chairman of Neurosurgery at MedStar Washington Hospital Center, the largest and most advanced hospital in Washington, DC, Dr. Aulisi has been a leader in cranial and spinal surgery for over two decades. A Washingtonian Magazine Top Doctor for 26 years, Dr. Aulisi serves as the Surgical Director of the MedStar Neuroscience Center, the MedStar Pituitary Center, the MedStar Spine Center at Mclean, and the Center for Image Guided Neurosurgery. Dr. Aulisi was the first to perform Cirq Robotic spine surgery in North America, and first to perform an intraoperative CT image-guided surgical procedure in Washington, DC, where the Center serves as a primary site for Robotic Neurosurgical procedures.

This initiative at MedStar includes intraoperative CT imaging, Brainlab computer-assisted surgery, and Robotic surgery AT THE SAME TIME, which offers the most advanced and accurate surgical access with minimally invasive spine and brain approaches. The program’s approach when treating neurosurgical patients is built around the concept of “Authentic Excellence”, offering patients individualized one-on-one interactions with the surgeon, while developing and performing the most complex and intricate procedures utilizing 21st century computer-assisted techniques. This approach assures personalized care in an environment where excellence is the primary goal.

The newly completed MedStar Neuroscience Center provides a centralized location for evaluating and treating patients with all types of neurological illnesses, in a state-of-the-art facility. The newly renovated Neuroscience ICU provides the latest in neurotrauma, stroke and neurovascular care, with specialty trained nurses, physicians and support staff, all striving toward the common goal of making patients better. The MedStar Neuroscience Center is the region’s leader in treating all patients with Brain and Spine diseases.


Dr. Aulisi is a world-renowned expert in computer-assisted cranial and spinal microsurgery, Pituitary Surgery, and Robotic Neurosurgery. He has spent his entire career practicing in the Greater Metropolitan DC Region.
