June 17, 2022  //  FOUND IN: Strategy & Leadership

The U-M board of regents on Thursday approved the appointment of Aditya S. Pandey, M.D., as chair of the Department of Neurosurgery and the Julian T. Hoff, M.D., Professor of Neurosurgery in the U-M Medical School, effective June 1.

Pandey is a professor of neurosurgery, radiology and otolaryngology-head and neck surgery. He also serves as surgical director of the Comprehensive Stroke Center, director of strategic vision and outside collaborations in the Department of Neurosurgery and director of the Endovascular Neurosurgery Fellowship.

Pandey joined the U-M faculty in 2008 as an assistant professor of neurosurgery, and became assistant professor of radiology and associate professor of otolaryngology in 2012 and 2017, respectively. He earned promotion to his current rank of professor of neurosurgery (with tenure), radiology and otolaryngology-head and neck surgery in 2020.

He specializes in treating individuals who have blood vessel related diseases of the brain and spinal cord (e.g., aneurysms, AVM, stroke, fistulas, cavernomas, bleeding within the brain, etc.) as well as leading innovations with ultrasound and catheter-based technology for the treatment of ischemic and hemorrhagic stroke patient populations. He has co-led the formation of cerebrovascular centers at U-M Health West in Grand Rapids as well as in northern Michigan. He led the formation of the Michigan Endovascular Research Group (MERG), which aims to improve stroke care in the state of Michigan.

Pandey’s research interests include development of ultrasound technology for incisionless treatment of neurosurgical patient populations, understanding the role of CSF toxins in the development of post hemorrhagic hydrocephalus, and understanding opportunities of improvement of clinical outcomes of stroke patients through collaboration and large database analysis.

Please congratulate Pandey on his new leadership role!

Additionally, please acknowledge the groundbreaking leadership of Karin M. Muraszko, M.D., who has led and strengthened the Department of Neurosurgery for the past 17 years as chair. Muraszko made history as the first woman to chair an academic neurosurgery department in the country, and she continues to be an inspiration to many well beyond Michigan Medicine.
