Dr. Patil's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Patil "Dr. Patil joined the faculty at the University of Michigan in 2005. A native of Pennsylvania, he attended MIT, where he received a BS in electrical engineering. After graduation, he was awarded a Marshall Scholarship to study Philosophy and Economics at Magdalen College, Oxford University in the UK. On returning to the US, Dr. Patil pursued combined medical and doctoral studies in biomedical engineering at Johns Hopkins University as a fellow of the Medical Scientist Training Program. His doctoral dissertation focused upon the presynaptic regulation of voltage-gated calcium channels. For this work, he was awarded the Michael Shanoff Research Prize for the most outstanding research contribution in the School of Medicine and the Harvey Cushing Medical Student Research Award. The study of signaling between neurons led to a strong clinical interest in neurosurgery. During residency at Duke University, he was awarded an NIH postdoctoral fellowship to help develop brain-machine interface neuroprosthetic devices, which read electrical signals directly from the brain and control external actuators, such as robotic arms. This research was featured in Time magazine and on the cover of Neurosurgery. Following residency, Dr. Patil obtained additional clinical expertise through a fellowship in functional and deep brain stimulation surgery with Dr. Andres Lozano at the University of Toronto. In addition to his active clinical practice and research, Dr. Patil currently serves as Associate Chair for Clinical and Translational Research in the Department of Neurosurgery, as a member of the Michigan Medicine IRB, and as Chief Innovation Officer of the A. Alfred Taubman Medical Research Institute."

Very happy with this doctor. He was very knowledgeable. Very caring, kind and compasionate. He talks with you not at you. His bedside manner was great, spot on.
