About Juan Carlos Bartolomei, MD

Dr. Bartolomei received his medical degree from Yale University School of Medicine in New Haven, CT. After graduating cum laude, he remained at Yale where he completed his internship in the Department of Surgery and his residency in the Department of Neurosurgery. Dr. Bartolomei also spent a year as Chief Resident and Instructor in the Department of Neursurgery at Yale. He then left Yale to become an Attending/Fellow in Spine at the Barrow Neurological Institute, St Joseph Hospital, in Phoenix, AZ. Upon completing that training, Dr. Bartolomei returned to Yale where he is presently an Assistant Professor in the Department of Neurosurgery.

In addition to his educational accomplishments, Dr. Bartolomei has received numerous awards including the Yale University School of Medicine Department of Surgery Honors, the Connecticut Chapter of the American College of Surgeons & the Connecticut Society of American Board Surgeons Excellence in Surgical Studies Award, the American Association of Academic Surgery Research Award and the Sandoz Recognition of Superior Academic Achievement and Contribution to Health Care Award.

Dr. Bartolomei is a member of several prestigious professional organizations including the American Association of Neurological Surgeons, the Society for Neurosciences, the Congress of Neurological Surgeons, the North American Spine Society and the American Medical Association.

To date, Dr. Bartolomei has published over 30 articles and abstracts in such professional journals as the Journal of Neurosurgery, Neurosurgery and BNI Quarterly. He has also contributed to over 15 textbook chapters and has made numerous presentations at prestigious medical conferences. Dr. Bartolomei and his family live in Connecticut.

He is fluent in Spanish and, as an athlete, participates in volleyball, basketball, running and golf.
