Geoffrey T. Manley, MD, PhD

Chief of Neurosurgery at San Francisco General Hospital and Professor of Neurosurgery at the University of California San Francisco (UCSF).

Dr. Geoffrey Manley is a trauma neurosurgeon with clinical interests in brain injury, spinal cord injury and neurocritical critical care. Dr. Manley is an internationally recognized expert in neurotrauma. He has published over 120 manuscripts that reflect a wide range of research interests from molecular aspects of brain injury to the clinical care of head trauma patients. He has helped to define new molecular mechanisms of injury to the nervous system that may lead to new treatments for these devastating injuries. He is also considered a leader in the rapidly growing field of advanced neuromonitoring and clinical informatics for critical care.
