Dr. Tushar Goradia, MD, PhD
Dr. Goradia has been serving critically ill and injured patients for the last 15 years and is the President of Nervana. Dr. Goradia is a board-certified neurosurgeon. He received his medical degree from Harvard Medical School in 1992. He also received his Ph.D. from Harvard University in applied mathematics. Dr. Goradia’s experience with neurosurgery and trauma ignited his fascination for regenerative cellular therapies–therapies that are less invasive and what he calls the wave of the future. He is a very innovative and cutting edge doctor committed to the latest advancements in medicine and to his patients’ well being.
Dr. Goradia completed a residency The Johns Hopkins Hospital in Neurological Surgery.
He helped develop a computerized, virtual reality toolbox that was used by recent presidential candidate, Dr. Ben Carson, during one of his famous surgeries separating 11-month-old Siamese twins from South Africa in 1998. See what Dr. Carson said regarding the software Dr. Goradia helped design.
Neither Gray’s Anatomy nor any other medical book could help Benjamin Carson prepare for the surgery he performed December 31. Nothing about this case was textbook. Carson’s patients, 11-month-old Zambian twins Luka and Joseph Banda, were born joined at the backs of their heads. They shared a tangled array of blood vessels.
But when Carson began delving into the vasculature of the infants’ brains on New Year’s Eve morning, he says, “It was like I’d been there before. I knew everything I would encounter.”
Carson, a world-renowned pediatric neurosurgeon at Hopkins, had already experienced a sort of sneak preview of the surgery. Before the operation, he had rehearsed the surgical procedure using a computerized, virtual reality toolbox, which combines many two-dimensional images of a patient’s brain taken through CT or MRI to create a 3D image. Sixth-year surgical resident Tushar Goradia helped develop the toolbox’s software.
Johns Hopkins Magazine published this article regarding the toolbox and surgery in April of 1998.
In Dr. Goradia’s spare time he enjoys innovating new technologies, some of which he has patents for. One of his favorite projects was helping develop a robotic manipulator for skull-based neurosurgery. To read more click here.
