Welcome from the Chair of Neurosurgery

Why Penn? It’s a question I’ve been asked by quite a few people since I decided to leave a wonderful job at another first-rate institution and move 1,500 miles to Philadelphia. My answer is simple: Penn Medicine is special. Penn Medicine is the seamless combination of an outstanding medical school in a world-class research university with an extraordinary health system that includes three academic medical centers in Philadelphia (Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania (HUP), Pennsylvania Hospital, and Penn Presbyterian Medical Center), three regional medical centers in surrounding communities, as well as numerous clinics, outpatient centers, and affiliated hospitals.
