Job Details

The Department of Neurosurgery and the Center for Spine Health in the Neurological Institute at the Cleveland Clinic is seeking a full time, spine neurosurgeon to join a team of multi-disciplinary providers in our Western Region including Fairview and Lutheran Hospital.

Cleveland Clinic Neurological Institute (NI) offers a patient centered, disease-specific approach to neurological care. Our unique, fully integrated model allows us to deliver state-of-the-art, high-quality care with the key capacity to measure quality and outcomes on a continual basis. This enhances our ability to conduct research and benefit future patients. The Cleveland Clinic neurology and neurosurgical services consistently receive high rankings in multiple national rankings related to patient care, education, and places to work.

The applicant must be a BC/BE neurosurgeon, preferentially fellowship trained in spine. Surgical volume focuses primarily on complex and routine spine cases. The newly recruited neurosurgeon will participate in combined general neurosurgery/trauma call. Call is on average 1:6 with APP teams providing first call. Additional responsibilities will include clinical care, teaching, and research activities. This dynamic position commands an extremely competitive salary enhanced by an attractive benefits package including but not limited to:
  • Excellent medical, dental, vision coverage
  • Comprehensive disability and life insurance benefits
  • Medical malpractice & tail coverage
  • Generous time away coverage for vacation, sick time, holidays and CME meeting time
  • Highly competitive retirement plans with employer contribution
  • Faculty appointment available at the Cleveland Clinic Learner College of Medicine commensurate with experience

The Center for Spine Health is a uniquely integrated department including orthopedic and neurosurgical trained spine surgeons, medical spine specialists, including rheumatologist, physiatrists, interventionalists, osteopathic physicians, psychologists, advanced practice practitioners, specialty trained nurses as well as a comprehensive chronic pain rehabilitation program. The Center features fellowship programs in both spine surgery and spine medicine, the former of which is the largest in the United States. In addition to a dynamic, collaborative clinical and surgical practice, the position requires the participation in resident and fellow teaching as well as basic, translational, biomechanical and/or clinical research. Clinicians in the Center for Spine Health work closely with other specialists in the Neurological Institute, particularly in the Center for Neuroimaging to provide evidence-informed, comprehensive world class spine care.
