Georges Z. Markarian, MD, MBA, FAANS, FACS
Chairman of the Neurosciences Institute at Akron General Medical Center, Dr. Markarian is a Board Certified Neurological Surgeon who is pioneering the use of minimally invasive surgical techniques in both the brain and spine. These cutting edge techniques are aimed at benefiting patients with complex vascular disorders of the brain such as stroke, aneurysms and malformations of the blood vessels by having less of an impact on the brain, resulting in much better outcomes. In addition, these minimally invasive techniques benefit patients requiring spinal discectomies, decompressions and fusions by decreasing the length of hospitalization, reducing their post-operative pain and by shortening their recovery time.
Dr. Markarian attended the University of Akron, graduating at age 19 with a Bachelor of Science in Chemistry (magna cum laude). After graduating from the Ohio State University College of Medicine in 1994, Dr. Markarian completed his internship in General Surgery and residency in Neurosurgery at the world-renowned Cleveland Clinic Foundation where in his final year, served as Chief Resident of the Neurosurgery program. Following his residency, he was awarded and went on to complete additional training as Fellow and then Chief Fellow in Interventional Neuroradiology. After finishing with his training, Dr. Markarian was recruited by and immediately joined our team at The Center for Neuro and Spine Inc. (CNS).
Dr. Markarian is a member of the American Association of Neurological Surgeons (AANS), Congress of Neurological Surgeons (CNS), and The Ohio State University College of Medicine Landacre Society.
