Neurosurgery One is pleased to welcome Andrew Romeo, MD, to Denver’s most comprehensive neurosurgical practice. The fellowship-trained stereotactic and functional neurosurgeon brings with him eight years of experience treating epilepsy, movement disorders, brain tumors and spinal disorders both surgically and noninvasively. He is now seeing patients at our clinics in Littleton and Lone Tree.
“I am excited to work alongside such a dynamic multidisciplinary team to provide the most up-to-date and high-quality care for neurosurgical patients in the region,” Dr. Romeo says.
Specializing in the treatment of epilepsy with minimally invasive surgery, Dr. Romeo provides his patients with shorter recovery times and smaller scars than they would get with open surgery. He also uses the latest surgical techniques, including deep brain stimulation, in the treatment of movement disorders, such as Parkinson’s disease, dystonia and essential tremor.
Dr. Romeo completed his neurosurgery residency as well as a stereotactic and functional neurosurgery fellowship at the University of Alabama School of Medicine while serving as a clinical instructor of neurosurgery. He has been recognized with an Alpha Omega Alpha Academic Society award and is a member of both the Congress of Neurological Surgeons and the American Academy of Neurological Surgeons.
A proponent of evidence-based medicine, Dr. Romeo also understands the importance of getting to know every patient as an individual, and personalizes his diagnostic and treatment strategies to meet the needs of each of his patients.
When he’s not in clinic, Dr. Romeo enjoys spending time with his wife, who is a dermatologist, and their young son. Dr. Romeo is an avid snow and water skier, making his move to Colorado from Alabama all the more worthwhile.
