Michael Avery, MD, obtained his medical degree from the University of Western Ontario in London, Canada. He then completed the neurosurgery residency program at the University of Calgary, during which he also obtained a Master of Science degree in Neuroscience investigating the potential use of mesenchymal stem cells in the prevention and treatment of brain aneurysms.
In 2019 he completed a fellowship in cerebrovascular and endovascular neurosurgery at Thomas Jefferson University Hospital in Philadelphia with a focus on minimizing invasiveness through the use of cutting-edge endovascular techniques and devices. To continue his pursuit of comprehensive minimally invasive cerebrovascular and skull base surgery, Dr. Avery joined the Pacific Neuroscience Institute as the 2020 fellow to learn advanced endoscopic skull base and keyhole surgery techniques. Dr. Avery’s academic interests include clinical outcomes research within the fields of cerebrovascular and oncological neurosurgery to improve the patient experience and the efficiency of resource and hospital utilization.
