The Gamma Knife Center is pleased to expand upon its neurosurgical expertise with the addition of Neurosurgeons William S. Cobb, M.D., Ph.D., and William Christopher Fox, M.D. They join Anthony D’Ambrosio, M.D., in offering Valley patients the most targeted, noninvasive treatment for brain conditions available.
Dr. Cobb has a keen interest in diseases of the brain and spine, particularly in the field of neuro-oncology, and a combined use of stereotactic radiosurgery/surgical intervention in the treatment of tumors of the brain and spine. Dr. Cobb earned his doctoral degree in neuroscience from Rutgers University and his medical degree from New Jersey Medical School. He went on to complete his surgery internship and neurological surgery residency at New York Presbyterian/Weill Cornell and Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center in New York City. Dr. Cobb also dedicated two years during his residency to a neuro-oncological research fellowship at Weill Cornell and Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center, studying the development of brain tumors. He is currently an assistant professor of clinical neurosurgery at Columbia University.
Dr. Fox is a board-certified neurosurgeon and assistant professor of clinical neurosurgery at Columbia University with an interest in the treatment of neurovascular disease using endovascular (minimally invasive) and traditional surgical methods, as well as minimally invasive approaches to the spine. He received his medical degree at the University of Michigan, continuing on there to complete his neurological surgery internship and residencies. He also completed an endovascular neurosurgery fellowship at the University of Florida. Before joining Columbia, Dr. Fox spent three years on active duty as a neurosurgeon in the U.S. Navy, treating a wide variety of neurological diseases and traumatic injuries, as well as training medical students and surgical interns. Dr. Fox was elected to the Young Neurosurgeons Committee of the American Association of Neurological Surgeons and serves as a reviewer for medical journals and research grants.
