    Collapse Overview
    Dr. Walcott is a dual fellowship trained neurosurgeon that specializes in neurovascular disease. His clinical interests are in the management of patients with stroke, brain aneurysms, arteriovenous malformations, cavernous malformations, carotid artery disease, moyamoya disease, brain tumors, and spinal cord tumors. He performs both open surgery and minimally invasive, endovascular procedures.

    Dr. Walcott received his undergraduate degree from Seton Hall University. He then went on to graduate from medical school at Loyola University Chicago, where he was inducted into the Alpha Omega Alpha honor society. He completed a residency in neurological surgery at Harvard Medical School & the Massachusetts General Hospital. Following residency, Dr. Walcott joined the faculty at Harvard Medical School as an attending neurosurgeon at the Massachusetts General Hospital. He then went on to complete a fellowship in neurovascular surgery at the University of California San Francisco, with an emphasis on cerebrovascular bypass and minimally invasive skull base surgery. Additionally, he completed a fellowship in endovascular neurosurgery at the University of Southern California.

    Currently, Dr. Walcott is an Assistant Professor of neurosurgery at the Keck School of Medicine of the University of Southern California. He directs a research lab focused on investigating the genetic and molecular basis of vascular malformations, brain edema, and cerebral ischemia. He has authored over 150 peer-reviewed scientific publications and his research been funded by the Brain Aneurysm Foundation, the Congress of Neurological Surgeons, and the National Institutes of Health. Dr. Walcott is a member of the American Association of Neurological Surgeons, the Congress of Neurological Surgeons, and the Society of Neurointerventional Surgery.
