  • Assistant Professor, CWRU School of Medicine

Abhishek Ray, MD, is a fellowship-trained, board-certified neurological surgeon at University Hospitals and assistant professor of neurological surgery at Case Western Reserve University School of Medicine. He specializes in caring for people with cerebrovascular disease (brain aneurysms, stroke, AVMs), pituitary tumors and meningiomas, and in minimally invasive techniques to treat degenerative spine disease.

In neurological surgery, there are often multiple ways to treat a single problem, and Dr. Ray is committed to providing each patient with an individualized care plan to optimize results. In 2021, he was selected by his peers to be included in Cleveland Magazine’s list of Top Doctors.

After completing his undergraduate degree in biological systems engineering at the University of California – Davis, Dr. Ray went back to his hometown to attend medical school at the University of Kansas School of Medicine in Kansas City, Kansas, where he was elected to be an ambassador of the school and was inducted into the Alpha Omega Alpha Honor Medical Society. He then went on to complete neurological surgery residency at University Hospitals/Case Western Reserve University School of Medicine, where he also completed fellowship training in neuro-interventional surgery.

Dr. Ray stayed on as faculty at UH/Case Western Reserve University School of Medicine to advance neurosurgical education there. He created a unique and comprehensive neurological surgery elective for second-year medical students, of which he is now the course director. He has been an instructor at national skull base courses for neurosurgical residents and fellows and has served as editor of the neuro-interventional section of CNS Nexus, an online library of neurosurgical cases to better prepare trainees for the operating room.

Outside of work, Dr. Ray enjoys spending time with his family, playing tennis, snowboarding, and watching his kids play hockey and figure skate in Cleveland.

I didn't learn anything. I wasn't explained anything. I didn't get to ask anything. The appointment felt very incomplete.

Dr. Ray was friendly, personable, and approachable. He took the medical reason for my visit and easily translated it into a simple, understandable explanation. His demeanor was positive and he was also happy to take the time to communicate about my needs. I felt very comfortable asking him questions and appreciated learning his insights and advice.

Industry Relationships

University Hospitals is committed to transparency in our interactions with industry partners, such as pharmaceutical, biotech, or medical device companies. At UH, we disclose practitioner and their family members’ ownership and intellectual property rights that are or in the process of being commercialized. In addition, we disclose payments to employed practitioners of $5,000 or more from companies with which the practitioners interact as part of their professional activities. These practitioner-industry relationships assist in developing new drugs, devices and therapies and in providing medical education aimed at improving quality of care and enhancing clinical outcomes. At the same time, UH understands that these relationships may create a conflict of interest. In providing this information, UH desires to assist patients in talking with their practitioners about industry relationships and how those relationships may impact their medical care.

UH practitioners seek advance approval for certain new industry relationships. In addition, practitioners report their industry relationships and activities, as well as those of their immediate family members, to the UH Office of Outside Interests annually. We review these reports and implement management plans, as appropriate, to address conflicts of interest that may arise in connection with medical research, clinical care and purchasing decisions.
