He offers patients access to emerging techniques for the treatment of epilepsy, brain tumors, and disorders of the spine. His area of specialty includes using novel brain mapping and computer-assisted navigation technologies to improve the safety and efficacy of neurosurgical procedures. During his fellowship training at the Cleveland Clinic, Dr. Lega gained expertise in the use of stereo EEG, a technique used to identify whether patients with epilepsy are candidates for surgical treatment. He is one of only a handful of neurosurgeons in the country using this technique.
Dr. Lega’s research focuses on how brain conditions affect memory. The research he began at the University of Pennsylvania and that he continues at UT Southwestern focuses on preserving memory function and restoring memory to patients with brain injuries or brain tumors. He is a member of several professional organizations, including the American Association of Neurological Surgeons, the Congress of Neurological Surgeons, and the Society for Neuroscience.
