Marc A. Goldman, MD
Neuro-Oncology and General Neurosurgery
Dr. Marc Goldman received his undergraduate degree from the University of Illinois and his medical degree from the University of Dublin, Trinity College, where he graduated with high honors. Following completion of his residency and chief residency in Neurosurgery at the Warren Alpert Medical School of Brown University and Rhode Island Hospital, Dr. Goldman spent a year at the prestigious Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center in New York City, receiving advanced fellowship training in neurosurgical oncology. While in fellowship he became highly skilled in performing awake craniotomies to aid in the safe surgical resection of brain tumors in eloquent brain regions. He also developed expertise in the use of advanced neuro-navigation techniques, including intra-operative MRI and functional MRI in the surgical management of all types of brain and skull base tumors.
In addition to general neurosurgery, Dr. Goldman specializes in the management of benign and malignant primary brain tumors, metastatic brain tumors, and skull base tumors and has a particular interest in the management of traumatic brain injury and neurocritical care.
Dr. Goldman works closely with the multidisciplinary neuro-oncology group at the Rhode Island Hospital Cancer Center. His research interests focus on the use of various techniques of MRI and PET imaging of brain tumors and head trauma with a goal of greatly improving their diagnostic and prognostic capabilities.
