On October 16, 2012, I had surgery at Brigham and Women's Hospital to remove a mass from my brain. Two surgeries and ten years later, I continue to receive excellent and consistent care from Dr. Alexandra Golby and her neurosurgery team. I'm hosting this fundraiser to give back to Dr. Golby and BWH's neurosurgery department to ensure that others receive the same quality care that I continue to receive today. Help me reach my fundraising goal of $20,000 by making a donation today! Also, don't forget to ask your employer if they have a matching gift program.
Brigham and Women’s Hospital cares for patients across New England, throughout the United States, and from 120 countries around the world. Every day, clinicians, researchers, and caregivers work to find new ways to predict, prevent, and treat the most challenging diseases of our time while delivering world-class care with a profoundly human touch. Specifically, Dr. Golby is a world leader in neurosurgery, and her research is seeking to better understand and treat the most complicated brain diseases, while also improving standards of care for brain tumor patients across the globe. Community supporters like me are proud to support quality patient care, innovative training, and life-changing discoveries that will benefit patients here in Boston and around the world.
Please join me in supporting Brigham and Women's Hospital!

About Dr. Alexandra Golby
Dr. Alexandra Golby is Professor of Neurosurgery and Professor of Radiology at Harvard Medical School. After completing neurosurgical training at the Brigham and Women’s Hospital/Boston Children’s Hospital Neurosurgery residency program in 2002, she received the Dandy Clinical Fellowship from the Congress of Neurological Surgeons to study in France with Professor Benabid, and in Switzerland with Professor Villemure. She returned to the Brigham in 2003 to start her faculty career.
At the Brigham, Dr. Golby is Director of Image-Guided Neurosurgery, Co-Director of AMIGO (Advanced Multimodality Image-Guided Operating Suite), and Co-Director of Clinical fMRI. She directs a fellowship in image-guided neurosurgery to train the next generation of innovators. Her clinical practice is focused on image-guided neurosurgery, with a special interest in surgery for patients with brain tumors and epilepsy, particularly those whose disease is intimately involved with critical brain regions.
Golby Lab: Improving Surgical Outcomes for Patients with Brain Tumors
Dr. Golby is advancing innovative research to develop functional, structural, and molecular brain imaging techniques to improve surgical outcomes and develop new interventions for patients with brain tumors. These state-of-the-art techniques are used for preoperative planning, intraoperative guidance, and delivery of critical therapies to the brain. Current research priorities for Dr. Golby include:
• Using MRI-guided focused ultrasound to improve the delivery of targeted therapies across the blood-brain barrier
• Developing highly detailed maps of each patient’s brain and tumor to help guide surgery and other interventions
