• Assistant Clinical Professor, Neurological Surgery




Dr. Huang’s clinical expertise is the surgical treatment of complex intracranial pathologies, both tumors and vascular lesions. He has received extensive training in the management of meningiomas, pituitary tumors, acoustic neuromas, aneurysms, vascular malformations, extracranial carotid diseases, cerebral revascularization and trigeminal neuralgia.

Dr. Huang’s research interests include neurotrauma and neurocritical care. Specifically, he is interested in advanced neuromonitoring in the setting of traumatic brain injury and spontaneous subarachnoid hemorrhage, skull base fractures, and endocrinological disturbances following trauma. In addition to his focuses on neurotrauma and neurocritical care, Dr. Huang also has interests in the advancement of surgical approaches to pathologies of the cranial base, including the use of minimally invasive and endoscopic techniques.
