He is an Assistant Professor of Neurosurgery at the Keck School of Medicine of USC with an associate appointment in the Department of Psychiatry. Dr. Lee also treats adult hydrocephalus, including normal pressure hydrocephalus and idiopathic intracranial hypertension (pseudotumor cerebri). He has an ardent clinical interest in developing treatments for cognitive and psychiatric disorders, including deep brain stimulation for obsessive compulsive disorder, depression, Alzheimer's disease and schizophrenia and has published over 40 peer-reviewed articles on various neurosurgical and basic science topics relating to deep brain stimulation for cognitive dysfunction and psychiatric disorders. Philosophy of Care: Visiting a physician can be a daunting experience, especially when it involves brain surgery. I am humbled by the opportunity to provide neurosurgical care to my patients. I will ensure that my patients are well informed throughout their care, including diagnosis, treatment options, surgery, and post-operative care. I am dedicated to providing safe and well-informed care that is supported by evidence-based medicine and enhanced by state-of-the-art technology.
