Adam E. Ammar, MD

Dr. Adam Ammar completed his Pediatric Neurosurgical Fellowship at the Johns Hopkins Hospital in 2023, and his neurosurgery residency at the Albert Einstein College of Medicine/Montefiore Medical Center in New York in 2022. In addition, he completed a Fellowship in Global Neurosurgery at the Harvard Medical School Program in Global Surgery and Social Change in 2021. His goal is to meld the two fields of pediatric and global neurosurgery to the benefit of patients both at home and abroad.

He is co-founder and assistant editor for the Journal of Global Neurosurgery, a new peer-review journal for global neurosurgery focused on promoting literature from low and middle income countries. He has also led capacity building efforts in Tanzania, Senegal, and Afghanistan, in addition to undertaking multiple surgical trips to Mongolia.
