    Physician Bio

    Dr. Sanjay Ghosh was born and raised in the suburbs of Detroit, Michigan where he attended North Farmington High School. Dr. Ghosh graduated from North Farmington in the top 1% of his class with awards for being the outstanding student in both mathematics and science. He also was honored to receive the award for outstanding overall graduate from the faculty and his fellow students. During this time, Dr. Ghosh was invited to join MENSA.

    Dr. Ghosh received a Regents Alumni Merit Scholarship to attend the University of Michigan Honors College. Dr. Ghosh completed his studies in cellular and molecular biology in just three and a half years, graduating Magna Cum Laude and Phi Beta Kappa for placing in the top 5% of his class. In college, he received competitive research grants, and a portion of his college honors thesis was published in the peer reviewed scientific Journal of Hypertension. He went on to attend medical school at the University of Michigan where he was exposed to the field of neurosurgery, and later gained acceptance to the top rated neurosurgery residency program at the University of Southern California. While a resident at USC Dr. Ghosh gained training and considerable expertise in the arenas of spinal surgery, cranial and spinal trauma, radiosurgery, and cranial base surgery.

    During his residency, Dr. Ghosh completed a fellowship in skull base surgery at the House Ear Clinic under the guidance of Drs. William Hitselberger and John Diaz Day. During this time, he spent hundreds of hours in the laboratory mastering the surgical techniques that are necessary for safe and effective treatment of acoustic neuromas, skull base meningiomas, pituitary adenomas, and cerebral aneurysms. He also performed detailed analysis of the use of endoscopes in skull base surgery, and presented this work at several national conferences. Due to his training and expertise in skull base surgery, Dr. Ghosh was then recruited by the physicians of the Senta Clinic in San Diego to create the only multidisciplinary skull base surgery team in San Diego County. In 2007, Dr. Ghosh was named one of America’s Top Surgeons by the Consumers Research Council.
