Peter Nakaji, MD, is a cerebrovascular and endoscopic neurosurgeon. He completed his residency at the University of California, San Diego. He received additional fellowship training in endoscopic neurosurgery in Sydney, Australia, and in cerebrovascular and skull base surgery at Barrow Neurological Institute (BNI).
Currently, he is the neurosurgery residency program director of the BNI. Dr. Nakaji has published more than 250 articles and has co-edited a number of neurosurgical textbooks, including Neurovascular Surgery and Color Atlas of Cerebral Revascularization.
Neurovascular medicine has emerged as an established, semi-independent subspecialty of neurology and neurosurgery. Decision Making in Neurovascular Disease focuses on the challenging process of determining the best approach for managing patients with intracranial atherosclerosis, carotid artery disease, stroke, aneurysms, arteriovenous malformations, arteriovenous fistulae, cavernous malformations, and hypervascular tumors. Leonardo Rangel-Castilla, Robert Spetzler, esteemed coauthors, and an impressive cadre of experts discuss highly divergent modalities including medical management, open cerebrovascular, endovascular, radiosurgery, and combined/multimodality alternatives.
