Biography

Jeffrey Greenfield, MD, PhD is a board-certified neurosurgeon who specializes in pediatric neurosurgery. In addition he sees certain adult patients with congenital neurosurgical conditions. Compassionate clinical care, research, and education are all central to his philosophy as a neurosurgeon and physician.

As creator and director of the Chiari CARE program, Dr. Greenfield has developed an international reputation caring for children and adults with Chiari malformation, tethered cord, syringomyelia, and other associated conditions such as craniocervical instability, CSF leaks, and hydrocephalus as part of a large multidisciplinary team. Dr. Greenfield is a strong proponent of the unique concept of transitional neurosurgery – caring for patients with specific conditions from childhood through adulthood.

Dr. Greenfield also directs the pediatric skull base surgery program, evaluating and removing tumors of the pituitary gland region and skull base such as craniopharyngiomas with minimally invasive endoscopic tools. Dr. Greenfield is also expert in utilizing minimally invasive ventricular endoscopy of the brain to treat tumors, hydrocephalus, and cysts within the ventricles, and intraoperative brain and spine mapping and imaging to care for children with benign and malignant tumors of the brain and spine.
