Michael D. Staudt, MD MSc, is a Functional Neurosurgeon, which is a specialty that involves the use of innovative medical devices to modify the nervous system and improve or restore neurological function and quality of life. His clinical practice and research interests primarily include neuromodulation for pain, movement disorders, and epilepsy.
He completed a Master’s degree in neurobiology and neurosurgical training at Western University in London, Ontario, Canada. During residency, he completed an enfolded fellowship in Functional and Stereotactic Neurosurgery at Case Western Reserve University, followed by a second post-graduate fellowship at Albany Medical Center.
Dr. Staudt advocates for an individualized approach in treating every patient to help ensure they receive the best treatment possible, especially for those who are challenged by chronic pain. Chronic pain poses a treatment challenge for patients and is often debilitating, and he acknowledges that meaningful improvement in pain and function can only be achieved when closely involving the patient in their treatment plan.
