Dr. Rock's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Rock "Dr. Rock received his MD from the University of Miami, Florida. He was a research fellow in surgical neurology at the National Institutes of Health in Bethesda, Maryland, and also received a fellowship in neurotrauma at the University of Maryland. He joined the neurosurgery senior staff at Henry Ford Hospital in 1986. Dr. Rock is currently co-director of the surgical neuro-oncology clinic as well as co-investigator of several clinical protocols assessing new treatments for primary and metastatic brain tumors. His specific clinical and research interests are pituitary disorders and surgery, skull base surgery, and neuro-oncology. Since 2002 Dr. Rock has directed the neurosurgical residency program at Henry Ford Hospital. Although neuro-oncology and skull-base surgery continue to be his primary interests, the radiosurgical management of patients with spinal tumors has become a more recent addition. In 2004 Dr. Rock also became an active member of the Federation for International Education in Neurosurgery (FIENS) which was founded to address the critical lack of trained neurosurgeons in the developing world. Through FIENS, Dr. Rock has volunteered in Thailand, Vietnam and Ethiopia providing hands on training and education to the neurosurgeons and critical patient care assistance."

Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Rock "It is reality that many people, at some time or another, will have to consider whether a surgical procedure is in their best interest. As a neurosurgeon, it has been my experience that while we best serve our patients by carefully and compassionately carrying them through their surgical procedure, we undoubtedly are helping far more patients by clearly indicating when surgery is not truly necessary."

I have been treated by Dr. Rock for several years and had a spinal fusion in August of 2016. Dr. Rock and all of the support personnel were always very professional and answered all questions and discussed all options. Surgery provided excellent results and recuperation has been good. I would STRONGLY suggest seeing Dr. Rock and the Henry Ford Detroit Hospital personnel for all Neurosurgery needs. All hospital should provide this type of excellent service.

I was referred to Dr. Jack P Rock- by a Johns Hopkins neurosurgeon that was one of his students several years ago. He described him as a 'Master Surgeon' and 'Meticulous'. I met with him and immediately knew that I could trust him with my life. He did not rush through the appointments- and carefully explained the answer to every question that I had. He didn't make any promises-though no more painful headaches & a quick recovery. I highly recommend him!
