Dr. Chang's Care Philosophy

At BNA, we put our patients first. We are committed to treating our patients with compassion and to providing innovative and sound medical options for the treatment of our patient's neurological conditions. As a patient of BNA, your health and well-being are important to us. The neurosurgeons, physiatrists, hospital staff, neurological institute, and other members of our multidisciplinary team work together with one goal in mind - helping you get well. Growing up, Dr. Steve Chang always wanted to be either a teacher or a doctor. Fortunately for BNA and our patients, he chose to do both. At Barrow Neurological Institute, Dr. Chang instructs and mentors neurosurgery residents and sees patients with spinal disorders and brain tumors. Growing up in North Carolina, Dr. Chang attended Duke University, then graduated from UNC-CH with a degree in Medicine. He completed his internship in Surgery at Banner Good Samaritan. The next years were spent at Barrow Neurological Institute, completing his neurosurgery residency and fellowships in Skull Base/Cerebrovascular and Complex Spine. His interest is in caring for patients with complex health spine and brain disorders, and working with them as a team to restore their lives. He believes in treating each patient as he would his own family members. Dr. Chang's outside interests include hiking, tennis, and spending time with his family.
