Neurosurgeon returns to Crouse Medical Practice

Jorge Eller

Board-certified and fellowship-trained cerebrovascular and endovascular neurosurgeon Jorge Eller, who previously served as a member of the team at Crouse Medical Practice Neurosurgery, has recently returned to the practice.

“Dr. Eller is highly regarded, and we’re proud to offer his experience, education and advanced training to our patients once again,” said President and CEO Seth Kronenberg, MD.

Eller returns to Crouse from Eisenhower Neuroscience Institute in California. He is board-certified by the American Board of Neurological Surgery since 2008 and is a member of the American Association of Neurological Surgeons and the Congress of Neurological Surgeons. “I’m pleased to have returned to Central New York to practice at Crouse, which has been deeply committed for many years to the delivery of advanced neurosurgical techniques in the area’s most state-of the-art facility,” said Eller.

He specializes in the treatment of brain, spinal and peripheral nerve pathologies in general, such as brain and spinal tumors; pituitary tumors; cervical or lumbar disc herniations; cervical or lumbar spinal stenosis; and carpal tunnel or ulnar nerve entrapment. In addition, he uses advanced microsurgical and minimally invasive endovascular treatment of cerebrovascular pathologies, such as intracranial aneurysms; arteriovenous malformations and fistulas; carotid stenosis or dissections; intracranial vascular stenosis and strokes, as well as chronic subdural hematomas, facial pain and trigeminal neuralgia.

After earning his medical degree from the Federal University of Espirito Santo Medical School in his native Brazil, Eller completed an internship in general surgery and residency in neurological surgery at SUNY Upstate Medical University. After his residency, he completed a fellowship in stereotactic and functional neurosurgery at Oregon Health and Science University in Portland, Oregon, where he subsequently served as an assistant professor of neurological surgery and chief of neurosurgery at the Portland VA Medical Center. In 2010, he joined the neurosurgical faculty at Saint Louis University, where he completed a fellowship in cerebrovascular and skull base surgery, followed by a fellowship in endovascular neurosurgery at the State University of New York at Buffalo.

After completing his fellowship training, Eller joined the faculty at Thomas Jefferson University department of neurosurgery, where he has served for several years as a clinical assistant professor and cerebrovascular and endovascular neurosurgeon at the AtlantiCare Neurosciences Institute, a member of the Jefferson Neurosciences Network. In this capacity, Eller has helped develop several neurosurgical service lines at AtlantiCare, including a comprehensive stroke center, multidisciplinary neuro-oncological and skull base surgery as well as providing general neurosurgical trauma care in support of the institution’s trauma center. Eller also earned a master’s in business administration from Widener University in Pennsylvania.
