Director, Neuroendovascular Fellowship Program

Profile:

Brian Jankowitz, MD, joined the Department of Neurological Surgery faculty as an assistant professor on July 1, 2010 after completing the department’s seven-year residency program and cerebrovascular fellowship. This unique skill set allows unbiased treatment options ranging from carotid stenting versus carotid endarterectomy, aneurysm coiling versus clipping, and AVM embolization versus resection.

Dr. Jankowitz has a keen interest in treating ischemic cerebrovascular disease including carotid or vertebral artery revascularization and acute stroke interventions. He believes a combination of open and endovascular means, working synergistically, holds the key to improving outcomes. He works closely with Tudor Jovin, MD, director of the UPMC Stroke Institute, to evaluate and treat hemorrhagic and ischemic disease in a multidisciplinary cerebrovascular clinic at UPMC Mercy.

Originally from Montgomery County, Maryland, Dr. Jankowitz received his medical training at Temple University in Philadelphia and received his undergraduate degree from the University of Notre Dame.
