Dr. Jeffrey Marc Dembner earned his medical degree at Yale University in New Haven, Conn. He completed an internship in general surgery at George Washington University, Washington, D.C., and a residency in neurological surgery at Stanford University. He is board-certified by the American Board of Neurological Surgery.
“I pride myself on being involved in every aspect of my patient’s care,” Dembner says. “I will see you in my office for appointments and I will see you in the hospital. Every detail of your care, from your first appointment, through surgery and recovery, is very important to me.”
Dembner encourages his patients to be involved in their care.
“I am keen to involve family members and keep them informed,” he says. “This is especially important if my patient is in the ICU, where family members can really make a difference. I believe strongly in patient education and I will review your films with you and use models to help you understand your condition. I am a patient advocate and will work with your insurance company if I feel there is a treatment that will benefit you.”
Dembner says he has wanted to be a doctor since he was a child.
“In school I was drawn to science,” he says, “and becoming a neurological surgeon lets me apply scientific techniques to truly make a difference in my patients’ lives.”
Dembner offers the most modern treatment options available for a wide range of conditions encompassing both cranial and spinal neurosurgery. His practice includes degenerative diseases of the spine and cranial base as well as tumors, infections, and trauma to the spine. He is a specialist in disorders of the brain and head, including tumors, aneurysms, arteriovenous malformations and trauma.
