Dr. Justin David Hilliard, MD

Accepting patients

    Overview

    My name is Justin Hilliard, MD. I am a neurosurgeon with a special focus in deep brain stimulation (DBS) surgery for the treatment of Parkinson's disease, essential tremor and dystonia. Beyond DBS, I treat patients with a wide range of neurosurgical conditions, including brain tumors, spinal cord tumors, cranial trauma and spine trauma. I graduated cum laude with research distinction in biomedical engineering from Duke University. I received my medical degree from the University of Virginia with research honors. During my time in medical school, I was a Howard Hughes Medical Institute Medical Research Fellow. I performed both general neurosurgical training and a stereotactic and functional neurosurgery fellowship at the University of Florida. Research is critical to improving our ability as clinicians to treat medical conditions more effectively. To this end, I am actively involved in several research efforts related to DBS. I am a co-investigator on a NIH R01 grant investigating improved synthetic dural material.I am an advocate of neurosurgical education and have received the Society of Teaching Scholars Outstanding Resident Educator Award and the Neurosurgery Faculty Teacher of the Year award. I am a diplomate of the American Board of Neurological Surgeons.I value my patients deeply and strive to provide them with a full understanding of their condition and the potential treatment options. Working closely with patients and their families, I pledge to support them through all stages of treatment and recovery, including pre-operative evaluation, surgery and post-operative course.
