Jay Vachhani, MD
Dr. Jay Vachhani completed his residency at the University of Illinois College of Medicine in Peoria, followed by a fellowship in Open Vascular and Endovascular Neurosurgery at the Semmes-Murphy Clinic in Memphis, Tennessee.
He began his undergraduate training in the Honors College at the University of South Florida. He was then selected into the Junior Honors Medical Program, an accelerated 7 year combined B.S./M.D. program at the University of Florida.
Dr. Vachhani’s first exposure to Neurosurgery came through a lecture given by Dr. William Friedman during one of the Junior Honors Seminars. Dr. Friedman eventually became his mentor and helped Dr. Vachhani to publish his first peer reviewed paper in the Journal of Stereotactic and Functional Neurosurgery on the use of radiosurgery for the treatment of vestibular schwannomas associated with Neurofibromatosis Type 2.
Dr. Vachhani is excited to be back in Florida in the Gator Nation at the University of Florida’s Department of Neurosurgery at the Orlando Regional Medical Center.
