Dr. Dumont, Associate Dean and Vice President of Health System Clinical Affairs, Charles B. Wilson Professor and Chair of the Department of Neurosurgery at Tulane University School of Medicine, serves as the Director of Tulane’s Center for Clinical Neurosciences.

Dr. Dumont is a board-certified neurosurgeon who completed his residency at the University of Virginia as well as a fellowship in cerebrovascular, skull base and endovascular neurosurgery at the University of Virginia. He has interests in all areas of pediatric and adult neurosurgery including stroke and cerebrovascular disease, tumors of the brain and spine, spine disorders, epilepsy, peripheral nerve disease, minimally invasive stereotactic radiosurgery.

He is dually trained in open traditional microsurgery and minimally invasive endovascular surgery for vascular disorders of the brain and spine, and believes that Tulane’s commitment to having multiple certified and fellowship-trained surgeons is an important differentiator locally and regionally. He has active neurosurgical research interests and has published and presented extensively with more than 200 publications and more than 175 national and international presentations. He is a member of the Editorial Board of the Journal of Neurosurgery (the specialty’s leading scientific journal) and serves on the Editorial Boards of several other academic journals.

Dr. Dumont’s particular expertise in stroke, aneurysm and hemorrhage has led to his being one of a select team of physicians with whom the FDA consults as they evaluate new technologies.
