Dr. Richard D. Murray is a neurosurgeon with advanced training and specific expertise in the management of skull base and complex cranial disorders. He employs a combination of traditional cranial approaches, minimally invasive neuro-endoscopy and stereotactic radiosurgery to provide his patients with multi-faceted treatment options. In addition, he leverages his sub-specialty training in minimally-invasive techniques towards spine surgery, incorporating both traditional and motion-preserving applications.
Dr. Murray has a special interest in skull base disorders, such as vestibular schwannomas, skull base meningiomas and pituitary adenomas, as well as microvascular compression syndromes, including trigeminal neuralgia and hemifacial spasm.
Dr. Murray was born in Tucson, AZ and spent his early years in South Africa, where he obtained a medical degree from the University of Stellenbosch. Upon his return to the United States, he completed his neurosurgery residency at the University of Vermont, followed by subspecialty fellowship training in skull base and micro-neurosurgery at Louisiana State University, and endoscopic brain and skull base surgery at Weill Cornell Medical College in New York.
Dr. Murray has co-authored numerous scientific articles and book chapters. He is a member of the American Academy of Neurological Surgeons, Congress of Neurological Surgeons and North American Skull Base Society.
