About the Speaker:
Ronald E. Warnick, M.D., is a neurosurgeon and brain tumor/trigeminal neuralgia specialist with Mayfield Brain & Spine in Cincinnati. He earned his medical degree with honors from the University of Rochester, completed his neurosurgery residency at New York University, and performed a neuro-oncology fellowship at the University of California, San Francisco. He was a faculty member at the University of Cincinnati (UC) from 1991 to 2017, becoming a full professor in 2001. He held the John M. Tew, MD, Chair in Neurosurgical Oncology and for ten years was Medical Director of the UC Brain Tumor Center. He is currently Co-Director of the Gamma Knife Center at The Jewish Hospital – Mercy Health.
In 1991 Dr. Warnick helped launch one of the first stereotactic radiosurgery programs in the nation. Since then, he has performed more than 4,100 radiosurgery procedures for brain tumors and trigeminal neuralgia. He has published several landmark articles defining the role of radiosurgery in the management of brain metastases and was one of the pioneers in the development of frameless radiosurgery technology. Under his leadership, Mayfield was awarded membership into the prestigious International Gamma Knife Research Foundation (IRRF), a consortium of Gamma Knife centers of excellence. The IRRF recently published an article in the Journal of Neurosurgery demonstrating that trigeminal neuralgia patients treated with stereotactic radiosurgery within four years of diagnosis have better pain relief with lower risk. Dr. Warnick is also the principal investigator of an international study on trigeminal neuralgia to determine the relationship between biologically effective radiation dose and clinical outcomes.
Dr. Warnick served as Chairman of the American Association of Neurological Surgeons/Congress of Neurological Surgeons Section on Tumors from 2005 to 2007 and remains on the Advisory Board. He currently serves on the editorial board of the Journal of Neuro-Oncology and is an ad-hoc reviewer for the Journal of Neurosurgery; International Journal of Radiation Oncology, Biology, and Physics; and World Neurosurgery.
