Referring Physicians


As neurosurgeons, we share your goal of providing the best possible care for patients with neurosurgical disease. We also strive to integrate training, research, and the development of novel technology with clinical care. In some cases, referring physicians seek a secondary consultation to confirm an opinion, to request more extensive diagnostic evaluations than may be available locally, or to have patients receive specialized treatment that they may be unable to provide. Please feel free to contact our faculty. Our search engine can help you quickly locate a Stanford specialist particularly interested in your patient's problem. Referring physicians are welcome to participate in our Department's educational activities listed under Announcements. Throughout and after their treatment at Stanford, we encourage patients to maintain close contact with their primary care and referring physicians.

Domestic Referrals

Physicians, case managers or medical organizations who would like to obtain consultations or discuss critical care issues may call General Neurosurgery at (650) 723-5575 or fill out our Make a Referral form and submit to the New Patient Coordinator. Your request will be handled within 24 hours. The purpose of the referral form is to provide contact information that will enable us to reach you quickly.

Patient Confidentiality and Security are extremely important. The Department of Neurosurgery adheres to the "Standards for Privacy of Individually Identifiable Health Information" as published by the Department of Health and Human Services (DHHA) in The Federal Register, 45 CFR Parts 160 through 164. Please do not identify or provide confidential patient data in this electronic form.

International Referrals

Stanford University Medical Center has an excellent International Medical Services Program and the Department of Neurosurgery has a well established reputation for seeing and treating patients from the international community who have unusual and complicated neurosurgical conditions.
