About Me

"I strive to help patients improve on their quality of life. Oftentimes, surgery is not required and conservative management is the preferred approach. When surgery becomes a realistic option, my philosophy is to provide the patients with an individualized approach for their condition."

Dr. Shih is an accomplished neurosurgeon focusing on the treatment of complicated spinal and cranial pathologies. He graduated Summa Cum Laude from Texas A&M University with a Bachelor of Science in biomedical engineering. He completed his medical education at The University of Texas Southwestern Medical School at Dallas where he was educated by world-renowned physicians and scientists including five Nobel Lauretes. Following medical school, he spent a year doing his surgical internship at Beth Israel Medical Center in New York City. After his internship year, he spent the next six years of his post graduate training in Chicago completing a residency in neurosurgery at McGaw Medical Center of Northwestern University. He has been fortunate to work with a number of prominent physicians in the field of neurosurgery. Dr. Shih's academic achievements include four book chapters, thirteen peer-reviewed journal articles, and multiple presentations at national meetings.
