Dr. Jonathan A. Grossberg, MD

Dr. Jonathan Grossberg received his BA in Political Science from Brown University. He went on to receive his MD and complete residency training in Neurosurgery from Alpert Medical School at Brown University and fellowship training in Open Cerebrovascular and Endovascular Neurosurgery at Emory University Hospital. He currently holds a faculty appointment as an Assistant Professor in Neurosurgery and Radiology at Emory University School of Medicine. He is Board Certified in Neurological Surgery.
Dr. Grossberg’s areas of clinical expertise include open surgical and endovascular management of cerebrovascular diseases including: aneurysms, arteriovenous malformations, acute ischemic strokes, dural arteriovenous fistulas, and carotid stenosis, as well as other neurosurgical diseases such brain tumors, head trauma, and spine trauma.
Dr. Grossberg’s research interests include clinical outcomes of aneurysm patients treated via endovascular methods and stroke patients treated with thrombectomy.
