From the Doctor (Sponsored)
Dr. Charles Chang has over twenty years of neurosurgical experience. He is board-certified in neurological surgery, and was named one of the Best Doctors in Dallas by D Magazine in only his second year of practice in the area. His medical training, at some of the field’s most demanding institutions, matches unusual breadth with focused commitment, giving him a deep understanding of the central nervous system in both adults and children.
Dr. Chang earned his undergraduate and medical degrees from the Johns Hopkins University. He completed postgraduate training in pediatrics and pediatric neurology at Washington University in St. Louis, becoming board-certified in both specialties. He then did research at the National Institutes of Health before joining the staff at Children’s National Medical Center in Washington, D.C. and the faculty of the George Washington University Medical School as an assistant professor in pediatric neurology. His increasing interest in clinical medicine and the satisfaction he felt in seeing patients benefit from surgical intervention led Dr. Chang to enter neurosurgery. He completed neurosurgery residency training in the United States Navy at Bethesda Naval Hospital, after which he served at Portsmouth Naval Hospital.
After completing his service with the rank of commander, Dr. Chang entered private practice, first at Scott and White Clinic in Temple, Texas, and then in El Paso, where he co-founded the Gamma Knife Radiosurgery program at Sierra Medical Center. In 2000, Dr. Chang relocated his practice to New England Neurological Associates in North Andover, Massachusetts before returning to Texas in March of 2006. Since then, he has practiced in Plano, first working with Dr. Luis Mignucci at NeuroSpine Surgical Consultants and then in his own independent practice. He is a member of the American Association of Neurological Surgeons and the Congress of Neurosurgeons.
