Neurosurgery - Spine


Dr. Taub earned his undergraduate degree from Duke University and his medical degree from Emory University School of Medicine in Atlanta, GA, where he graduated in the top of his class. He went on to complete a residency in Neurological Surgery at Emory University, where he also served as Chief resident. During his residency, he was awarded a National Institute of Health (NIH)/National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke (NINDS) Grant and worked as a post-doctoral research fellow studying biological neurorestoration and neuromodulation.

Following completion of his residency, he completed a combined neurosurgery and orthopaedic spine surgery fellowship at the Cleveland Clinic, with focused training in minimally invasive and reconstructive techniques for the full spectrum of spinal disorders, including degenerative, tumor, trauma, rheumatologic, and infectious disorders. He complements his comprehensive cranial and spinal oncologic practice with radiosurgical techniques, such as Gamma Knife. Over the years, he has authored numerous articles and papers in peer-reviewed journals and medical publications.
