About William S Rosenberg

Dr. William S. Rosenberg attended Harvard Medical School in Boston, Massachusetts, graduating in 1987. He completed his neurosurgical residency at Massachusetts General Hospital, also located in Boston, in 1993. He is a fellow of the American Association of Neurological Surgery and a diplomat of the American Board of Neurological Surgery. Dr. Rosenberg began his career with the Mayfield Clinic in Cincinnati, Ohio (1994-1998), where he served as Director of Neurotrauma and Neurocritical Care at the University of Cincinnati and specialized in complex spinal surgery. He was then recruited to co-direct the Neurospinal Disorders Program in the Department of Neurosurgery, at the University of California, San Francisco, from 1998-2002, where he co-founded the Spinal Biomechanics Laboratory at the University of California, Berkeley. Dr. Rosenberg left academic neurosurgery in 2002, joining Midwest Neurosurgery Associates, out of a desire for greater focus on patient care and the ability to spend more time with family. In Kansas City, Dr. Rosenberg continued to pursue interests in complex spinal surgery. In addition, he expanded his area of expertise to include the treatment of chronic and cancer-related pain. He brought CyberKnife™ adiosurgery to the Kansas City area and served as Medical Director for the Menorah Medical Center CyberKnife Center for its first 6 years. Dr. Rosenberg is actively involved in treating patients with such modalities and neuromodulation, intrathecal pharmacotherapy, peripheral nerve, spinal cord, and deep brain stimulation. He is also very active in training other healthcare providers, curriculum development and lecturing, as well as designing and supervising clinical trials. Dr. Rosenberg is a member of the American Association of Neurological Surgeons, Congress of Neurological Surgeons, North American Spine Society, American Association of Pain Medicine, International Neuromodulation Society, North American Neuromodulation Society, AANS/CNS Joint Section on Pain, American Society of Stereotactic and Functional Neurosurgery, Missouri State Medical Society, Metropolitan Medical Society, and the Kansas City Neurology/Neurosurgery Society. He provides editorial support for Neuromodulation, the official journal of the North American Neuromodulation Society and serves on the Scientific Program Committee for the Annual Cancer Pain Forum in Scotsdale, Arizona. Dr. Rosenberg has a number of subspecialty interests, including surgical treatment of pain (including chronic, neuropathic and cancer-related symptoms), complex spinal surgery (degenerative disease, tumors, instrumentation, and reconstruction), minimally-invasive spinal surgery, radiosurgical treatment (CyberKnife™ of brain and spinal diseases, and deep brain stimulation for pain and psychiatric disorders (Obsessive Compulsive Disease).
