The Department of Neurosurgery is pleased to welcome Dr. Julie Sharpless. Dr. Sharpless has been the founding endocrinologist in our multidisciplinary pituitary tumor clinic. In this role, she has provided terrific education to neurosurgery residents, neurosurgery attendings, and endocrine fellows. The clinical care for the patients in the multidisciplinary clinic is unrivaled. In order to help her focus on the neuro-endocrine program and clinical research related to neuro-endocrinology, she has accepted our offer to move her full-time appointment to the Department. This should only strengthen its program.
Dr. Sharpless has also been named as one of the "Best Doctors in America" in the endocrinology category. The Department is proud of her for this achievement and thrilled to have her working even more closely with the team.
