Saint John's Appoints Renowned Neurosurgeon
October 29, 2009
Saint John’s Health Center announces the appointment of world-renowned neurosurgeon Amin Kassam, MD, as Director of the new Saint John’s Neuroscience Institute and faculty member of the John Wayne Cancer Institute at Saint John’s.
Dr. Kassam will lead the development of the new Neuroscience Institute which will offer an international minimally invasive neurosurgery center, as well as neuro-oncology, neuro-vascular surgery and other neuroscience services. The Institute will build on the foundation established over the last two years by Daniel F. Kelly, MD, Medical Director of the highly regarded Saint John’s Brain Tumor Center.
Dr. Kassam is the latest in a series of nationally recognized medical experts to join Saint John’s from leading academic medical centers, going back to the relocation of the John Wayne Cancer Institute from UCLA in 1991.
