BRADLEY LEGA, M.D.

Bradley Lega, M.D., is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Neurological Surgery at UT Southwestern Medical Center. As a neurosurgeon, he specializes in the evaluation and surgical treatment of brain tumors & epilepsy. He has secondary appointments in Neurology and Neurotherapeutics and Psychiatry. He earned his undergraduate degree at Rice University and his medical degree at Baylor College of Medicine. He completed his neurological surgery residency at the University of Pennsylvania and received advanced training through a fellowship in epilepsy surgery at the Cleveland Clinic.

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.
