During the 7-year program, the neurosurgery residents are intimately involved in patient care and research.


The department performs over 1800 surgical cases annually at three hospital locations:



University Hospital houses a 13-bed Neurosurgical Intensive Care Unit and a Neuro Step-Down Unit. It is also the only Level-1 Trauma Center in the 17-county area between Rochester and Albany and offers the most advanced technology to care for the most seriously ill and injured.


We have a total of 27 combined Neuro ICU and Step Down beds, in addition to 18 more dedicated neuroscience beds. This makes up a total of 45 neuroscience beds available at our disposal at The University Hospital. All these beds are located on one floor.
