  • Ricardo J. Komotar MD is an assistant professor of clinical neurosurgery in the Department of Neurological Surgery at the University of Miami and serves as the director of surgical neuro-oncology at the University of Miami Hospital and co-director of surgical neurooncology at the Sylvester Comprehensive Cancer Center and the University of Miami Health Clinics. Dr. Komotar graduated summa cum laude with a B.S. in neuroscience from Duke University, spending a year at Oxford University in England to focus on neuropharmacology. He received his medical degree from The Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine with highest honors and completed his internship and neurosurgical residency at Columbia University Medical Center / The Neurological Institute of New York, followed by a surgical neurooncology fellowship at Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center to specialize in brain tumors. Dr. Komotar’s main clinical interests are surgical and radiosurgical treatment of primary and metastatic brain tumors. Author of over 200 scientific articles, book chapters, and invited editorials in peer-reviewed journals such as Neurosurgery and the Journal of Neurosurgery, Dr. Komotar's research interests include clinical trial development and translational science research that is aimed to pioneer new therapies for brain tumors. He has received NIH grants for his research, and is collaborating currently for clinical trials including that for HSPPC-96 for glioblastoma multiforme. He has served on the Executive Committee for the Congress of Neurological Surgeons and the Executive Board for the AANS/CNS Joint Section on Tumors. Dr. Komotar is also founder and director of the Annual Neurosurgery Charity Softball Tournament - a successful international fundraiser benefiting brain tumor research through the Neurosurgery Research and Education Foundation of the American Association of Neurological Surgeons. The tournament features competition from prominent neurosurgical programs across the US and Canada, raising over $300,000 since its initiation with sponsorship by the New York Yankees and endorsement from Mayor Michael Bloomberg.
