THE FACE OF NEUROSURGERY
Everyone has heard the saying “It’s not brain surgery” before, but for Edward F. Aulisi, it really is. Though many people don’t realize that neurosurgeons treat BOTH brain and spinal diseases, the fact is that neurosurgeons are trained to treat all types of neurological surgical ailments, while using their skills of precision in every surgery they perform. 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. He has been a Washingtonian Top Doctor for 20 consecutive years. With advanced training and interest in spinal and cranial surgery, Dr. Aulisi also serves as Director of the MedStar Pituitary Center, The MedStar Northern Virginia Spine Center, and Professor of Neurosurgery at MedStar Georgetown University Hospital. A graduate of Princeton University, Dr. Aulisi has spent his entire career practicing neurosurgery in the nation’s capital, Maryland and now in Northern Virginia, as well.
