About Robert Thomas Wicks
Prior to joining Miami Neuroscience Institute in 2021, Dr. Wicks completed a cerebrovascular and skull base fellowship at the Barrow Neurological Institute followed by an endovascular neurosurgery fellowship at Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine.
Before starting his neurosurgical training, Dr. Wicks completed a research year in the Hunterian Neurosurgical Laboratory of Johns Hopkins. During that time, his research focused on the local delivery of new chemotherapies for brain tumors and the development of a handheld imaging device for the detailed imaging of brain blood vessels during aneurysm surgery. This research resulted in several academic publications and was awarded the Johns Hopkins Department of Neurosurgery Harvey Cushing Student Research Award.
His research has been published in numerous peer-reviewed journals, including the Journal of Neurosurgery, Stroke, Journal of Neural Engineering and the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences of the United States of America. Dr. Wicks has also published multiple book chapters and presented at many national meetings and forums. Currently, he is a member of the Congress of Neurological Surgeons, American Association of Neurological Surgeons, AANS/CNS Joint Cerebrovascular Section and Society of NeuroInterventional Surgery.
Dr. Wicks was inspired to become a neurosurgical physician because it is a field that combines dedicated patient care, careful surgical technique and rapid technological innovation. His second great passion in neurosurgery is research and the integration of new technology to advance the precision of surgical techniques and improve patient recovery. Dr. Wicks hopes that one day medical advancements will eliminate the need for surgery when treating neurologic diseases.
Dr. Wicks’ approach to patient care focuses on developing a comprehensive treatment plan based on the needs and desires of the patient and family. Through the integration of new technologies and minimally-invasive treatment approaches, he hopes to not only guide his patients through the best treatment options, but also help them to achieve a successful, lasting recovery. It is his goal to provide the highest level of clinical care and technical expertise in a compassionate, holistic manner.
When he is not treating patients, Dr. Wicks enjoys traveling, hiking, running and reading about technological advancements in medicine.
