AANS Cushing Award goes to Dr. Rossenwasser

Neurosurgeon Robert H. Rossenwasser, MD, FACS, FAHA, MLH System Division Chief of Neurosurgery and chair of the Department of Neurological Surgery at Jefferson, has been awarded the American Association of Neurological Surgeons’ Cushing Award for Technical Excellence and Innovation in Neurosurgery.


The award is given to recognize “technical prowess and skill and/or innovation in the development of new procedures that have become part of the arsenal neurosurgeons use to treat disease or trauma.”


Over his 29-year career, Dr. Rosenwasser has become one of the country’s foremost experts in endovascular neurosurgery, a minimally-invasive technique used to treat neurovascular diseases such as stroke.


Dr. Rosenwasser has played a key role in establishing the Jefferson Neuroscience Network, which links patients and doctors at regional hospitals – including all four MLH acute hospitals – with Jefferson specialists who have the expertise to diagnose time sensitive neurological disorders and who have helped to develop some of today’s leading minimally-invasive procedures for treating brain tumors, brain aneurysms, AVMs and strokes.
