    Arun Amar, MD, is an associate professor and the Director of Endovascular Neurosurgery at the University of Southern California. He also serves as Stroke Director and Associate Chief of Neurosurgery at the LAC+USC Medical Center. He is one of the few board-certified neurosurgeons who have completed fellowship training in interventional neuroradiology as well.

    Dr. Amar graduated summa cum laude with distinction in philosophy from Yale University, where he was elected to the phi beta kappa society. He then graduated at the top of his class from the University of California San Francisco, where he earned the MD with Thesis degree based on original research he performed at their renowned Brain Tumor Research Center. Dr. Amar completed neurosurgery residency and fellowship training at USC. Concurrently, he enrolled in the PhD program in Physiology and Biophysics and was awarded a pre-doctoral fellowship from the Howard Hughes Medical Institute.

    After his training, Dr. Amar was recruited back to Yale as Director of Endovascular Neurosurgery. He subsequently worked as a faculty member at Stanford University before returning to the USC School of Medicine.

    He has been selected for inclusion in the “Best Doctors in America” database, “America’s Top Surgeons” by the Consumers Research Council of America, Marquis “Who’s Who”, Academic Keys’ “Who's Who in Medicine Higher Education”, Castle Connolly’s “America’s Top Doctors”, Pasadena magazine’s “Top Doctors”, Hollywood Reporter’s “Top Doctors” and US news and World Report “Best Doctors in America” (top 1% of neurosurgeons). He is also a Distinguished Consultant to the National Institute of Medicine and recipient of the Award of Honor of the National Institute of Medicine in the Specialty Field of Neurosurgery.

    Dr. Amar’s research and clinical interests include brain and spinal cord injury, aneurysms and vascular malformations, stroke and cerebrovascular disorders, blood-brain-barrier, brain tumors, vagus nerve stimulation, interventional neuroradiology, vertebroplasty, kyphoplasty, stem cell therapy, and gene therapy. In these and other topics, Dr. Amar has authored more than 100 publications in the neurosurgical literature. He has also edited books on spinal cord injury and interventional neuroradiology.

    Dr. Amar has led the safety committees of dozens of multicenter randomized clinical trials of cerebrovascular disorders and served on the editorial staff of numerous journals. He has also held numerous leadership positions within organized neurosurgery. He is internationally recognized for his contributions to patient care, research, and education.
