Edward F. Aulisi Md, Faans, Facs

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 Top Doctor for 24 years, Dr. Aulisi serves as the Director of the MedStar Pituitary Center, the MedStar Spine Center at Mclean, and the Center for Image Guided Neuro Integrated Surgery (CIGNIS). Dr. Aulisi was the 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 new 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 approaches. The CIGNIS 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, in order to have the best outcomes possible. 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. This is supplemented with intensive rehabilitation at the attached MedStar National Rehabilitation Hospital.


Dr. Aulisi is a nationally recognized 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.
