About the Presenter

Dr. Lutz Weise – Neurosurgeon, Queen Elizabeth II Health Sciences Centre, Nova Scotia Health & Associate Professor, Dalhousie University

Following graduation from medical school in Berlin, Dr. Weise discovered his passion for stereotactic and functional neurosurgery during his residency in Lausanne, Switzerland. Following his return to Berlin, he joined Charité University Medicine where he had the opportunity to subspecialize in spine as well as in functional neurosurgery at one of the busiest Deep Brain Stimulation Centres in the country. This led to his appointment as Head of Functional and Spinal Neurosurgery at Geothe University in Frankfurt Germany, where he collaborated and led several research projects. At this time, Dr. Weise underwent formal education in teaching and research, which led to his appointment as an associate Professor at Dalhousie University in 2016 in Halifax.
