Dr. Benitez is one of the few neurosurgeons who are specialized in both the surgical and endovascular management of cerebrovascular disease. The emergence of minimally invasive endovascular procedures has allowed many life threatening lesions to be treated with less risk than more traditional open surgery.

Dr. Benitez has written and lectured extensively on cerebrovascular disease, presenting at national neurosurgical meetings. He recently authored one of the first papers describing a novel treatment for brain aneurysms with stenting. In addition to his work on developing endovascular procedures, Dr. Benitez is experienced in tumor surgery, especially skull based surgery and acoustic neuromas.
