After more than 30 years at UCLA building a renowned neurosurgery program and implementing a comprehensive and innovative service-line clinical quality program, Neil Martin, MD, came to Geisinger in 2016 as chair of the Neuroscience Institute and chief quality officer.

Dr. Martin attended Yale University and earned his medical degree from the Medical College of Virginia. He completed his surgical internship and neurosurgical residency under the direction of Charles Wilson, MD, at the University of California, San Francisco. Dr. Martin also completed a clinical and research fellowship in Neurovascular Surgery, with Robert Spetzler, MD, at the Barrow Neurological Institute in Phoenix, Ariz. 

Clinical interests

Dr. Martin has specialized in the research and treatment of neurovascular disorders, including arteriovenous malformation, aneurysm and stroke. He has published nearly 300 articles on his research in medical journals and texts, and conducted NIH-funded research on cerebral blood flow and metabolism, neurosurgical critical care and minimally invasive neurosurgery.“I am very excited about the opportunities at Geisinger to take advantage of the strengths and unique perspectives of our providers and other professionals in neurology, neurosurgery, psychiatry and neuropsychiatry to deliver a complete array of services to our patients with central nervous system issues. On the quality front, Geisinger is already doing many things to move the needle in a positive direction. I am equally enthusiastic about how the Neuroscience Institute can take a leading role in building on that success.”

“We are seeking energetic physicians passionate about high quality and innovation in medical care. We have well-established neurology and neurosurgery residencies. We offer teaching opportunities and faculty appointments at the Geisinger Commonwealth School of Medicine in Scranton. We strongly encourage research, particularly involving population health, genomics, precision medicine and value-based healthcare. We are also seeking advanced practitioners to work hand in hand with our neuroscience physicians and nurse navigators for growth and development of our integrated clinical neuroscience programs.” [1]
