The Columbia University Vagelos College of Physicians and Surgeons held its annual luncheon over the summer to recognize promotions, honors and awards received by faculty members over the past academic calendar year. This year, we’re pleased to announce that Dr. Peter D. Angevine was honored for his promotion to Associate Professor of Neurological Surgery at the College of Physicians and Surgeons.
Dr. Angevine is no ordinary spine neurosurgeon. He has a dual background in orthopedic surgery and neurosurgery, allowing him to approach spinal deformities in a holistic manner. In fact, he is one of the few neurosurgeons who has training in two surgical specialties. And his decision to train with both orthopedic surgeons and neurosurgeons reflects his belief that the surgeon with the most comprehensive training in spinal deformities is the one most suited to treat spinal deformities.
Dr. Angevine’s promotion recognizes the accomplishments he has made in fulfilling the core missions of Columbia University. Those core missions include providing extraordinary care options to patients, conducting transformative research and delivering innovative education to the next generation of scientists and physicians.
During the luncheon, Spine Hospital Director Dr. Paul C. McCormick was also recognized for having received the Meritorious Member Spine Award at the Spine Summit 2018. The summit is an international meeting organized by the Congress of Neurological Surgeons and the American Association of Neurological Surgeons. The award was in recognition of his outstanding contributions as a surgeon, researcher, teacher and leader.
