Patient Care Philosophy

The patient’s quality of life is the most important factor in medical care. Our team listens to each patient’s unique needs and develops a customized care plan to achieve this goal.

Personal Interests

Guitar, piano, jujutsu, skiing, hiking, yoga, fiction, cooking and world travel.

Research Interests

Dr. Levitt’s research has received multiple grants from the National Institutes of Health (NIH/NINDS). His research interests center around translational efforts to understand how cerebral aneurysms form, grow and rupture. By using cutting-edge technology including patient-specific blood flow measurements and computational fluid dynamics, his team hopes to develop methods to predict the long-term outcomes of minimally invasive aneurysm treatment. He leads a multidisciplinary team of neurosurgeons, neuroradiologists, mechanical engineers and physicists.
