“I am honored to ... join such a compassionate and driven group of caregivers and trailblazers.”

Equally at home in the operating room and the laboratory, Lisa Feldman, M.D., Ph.D., is determined to make a difference in the lives of people with brain and spinal cancer. “I went into medical school with a driven purpose to become a neurosurgeon so that I could combine my operating skills with my desire to care for patients, and use my Ph.D. training to generate new tumor therapies,” she says.
Dr. Feldman earned her medical degree at Rush Medical College in Chicago, her Ph.D. in neuroscience at McGill University, Montreal Quebec and her neurosurgery residency at Virginia Commonwealth University in Richmond, Virginia. She’s also completed a neuro-oncology fellowship at City of Hope.
The winner of numerous honors and awards throughout her academic and professional career, Dr. Feldman also has several surgical inventions to her credit. She sees City of Hope as a perfect fit, lauding its environment in which “patients are provided a very individualized therapy plan, generated by a multidisciplinary team of experts, including enrollment in cutting-edge clinical trials, with a warm, respectful and caring approach.”
