Russell Strom, M.D.

Dr. Russell Strom is from Bismarck, North Dakota. He attended Harvard College, where he received a bachelor’s degree in biochemical sciences, then went on to Washington University in St. Louis for his medical degree, which he completed in 2008. Dr. Strom’s clinical interests include spinal disorders and brain tumors. He believes that NYU's neurosurgery program provides a unique balance of autonomy and teaching in all the subspecialties.
