“I love taking care of patients. It's a privilege for me...  for patients to trust me with their care.”

After 20 years and thousands of brain surgeries at the University of Wisconsin, Madison, Behnam Badie, M.D., joined City of Hope in 2005 because he wanted to have an even greater impact.

“Being a neurosurgeon is not enough. It has to be through science and technology. And that’s one of the reasons I came to City of Hope.”

Dr. Badie, an expert in the field of surgical neuro-oncology, a University California, Los Angeles-trained surgeon and our Brain Tumor Program and Chief of Neurosurgery is leading groundbreaking research into nanotechnology as a tool for delivering cancer-fighting drugs directly into tumors, in a minimally invasive manner.

Winner of a long list of awards and honors, Dr. Badie says his entire perspective on surgery changed when his father died of a brain tumor. “It has really helped me get closer to my patients,” he says.
