Neurosurgeon joins SUNY Upstate Medical University

SYRACUSE, N.Y. — Eric M. Deshaies, M.D., has joined the Department of Neurosurgery as assistant professor, dually trained in neuroendovascular surgery and cerebrovascular and skull base surgery. He will specialize in the treatment of hemorrhagic and ischemic stroke, aneurysms, arteriovenous malformations (AVMs), skull base tumors, cranio-facial tumors and other complex disorders.

Deshaies is among only a few surgeons in the nation who are trained in this dual specialty. He is the only practicing surgeon of his kind in a region bordered by Albany, Rochester, the Canadian border and the Southern Tier.

Deshaies also directs SUNY Upstate’s Skull Base Laboratory, where he is pursuing new minimally invasive techniques and surgical approaches to tumors of the brainstem and cranio-facial regions.

Prior to joining SUNY Upstate, Deshaies was a clinical instructor of neurosurgery at Albany Medical Center.

Deshaies earned his medical degree at the University of Connecticut in 2000. He performed his residency at Albany Medical Center, serving as chief neurosurgical resident and senior fellow in neuroendovascular surgery. He also held a Cerebrovascular and Skull Base Fellowship at the University of Miami. He earned his bachelor’s degree at Trinity College.

His research has been published in numerous journals, including the Journal of Neurosurgery and Contemporary Neurosurgery.

Deshaies lives in Manlius.
