Michael Apuzzo Career

He joined the faculty at the University of Southern California School of Medicine in 1973, where he established a central nervous system immunology and cellular biology laboratory. There, he primarily focused on brain diseases such as tumors, epilepsy, Parkinson’s disease and neuropsychiatric disorders.

At the Los Angeles County General Hospital, he developed early refinements of microsurgical techniques for the management of intracranial neoplasms. Specifically, he described and advocated complex midline transcerebral microsurgical corridors to the brain’s centrally located third ventricle, which ultimately resulted in popularizing these approaches internationally.

He helped establish the microscope as a regular and essential component of the general neurosurgical armamentarium. He was appointed Professor in 1980.
