Expertise & Research Interests

Dr. Rosenwasser is among the country’s first dually trained cerebrovascular neurosurgeons, meaning he is able to treat diseases of the brain’s circulatory system using both conventional surgical methods and minimally invasive interventional radiology techniques. As a cerebrovascular neurosurgeon, he treats patients who have had strokes, aneurysms, AVMs, and carotid artery stenosis. He also serves as president of the Vickie and Jack Farber Institute for Neuroscience and is responsible for strategic directions in neuroscience.

He worked to establish the Jefferson Neuroscience Network (JNN)—a telemedicine system that affords Jefferson stroke physicians the ability to remotely assess and make treatment recommendations for people with suspected stroke throughout the region. In 2014, the American Association of Neurological Surgeons awarded Dr. Rosenwasser the Cushing Award for Technical Excellence and Innovation in Neurosurgery, which recognized his career-long effort to include interventional radiology techniques in neurosurgical training.
