Thousands and thousands of times, brain surgeon Gary K.
Steinberg, MD, PhD, has done one of medicine’s most difficult
jobs. Why? He fell in love. In this video, Steinberg, chair of
Stanford Health Care’s Department of Neurosurgery, director of the Stanford
Moyamoya Center, and founder and co-director of the Stanford
Stroke Center, explains his gradual evolution of study from
psychiatry to psychobiology to neurology— and finally to
cerebrovascular neurosurgery. He shares some of the journey that took
him from the outside of the brain into the depths of what makes us human.
