Overview of Dr. Starke
Dr. Starke is a member of the departments of neurological surgery and neuroradiology and specializes in the treatment of cerebral vascular disease including aneurysms, arteriovenous malformations and fistulas, cavernous malformaitons, moyamoya disease, carotid and intracranial stenosis including bypass surgery, pseudotumor cerebri, and intracranial hypertension. He also treats all aspects of brain tumor and skull base surgery. He is one of the few dual-trained neurosurgeons in the country able to offer both surgical and minimally invasive endovascular solutions to complex cerebrovascular disease. The minimally invasive endovascular techniques allows for patients to be treated through a 1mm incision in the leg with no incisions in the head. He also practices in gamma knife radiosurgery adding a further component of minimal invasive treatment options.
Because of his multi-modality training, he is unbiased with regards to the treatment chosen. While most lesions can be treated endovascularly, there are some cases are safer with surgery or focused radiotherapy. Dr Starke is able to perform every procedure from the initial angiogram to the final embolization or surgery. Dr. Starke also has a busy brain tumor practice, with approximately 1/3 of his patients being referred for brain tumors. He is also a specialist in pediatric vascular disease such as aneurysms and tumors, with 1 dedicated day per week treating children with endovascular techniques.
Dr. Starke is currently an Assistant Professor of Neurological Surgery and Radiology at the University of Miami MILLER School of Medicine. Previously, he graduated magna cum laude with a B.A. from Princeton University and distinction in neuroscience. He obtained his medical doctorate from Albert Einstein graduating with distinction in clinical and translational research. He also obtained a Masters of Medical Science with distinction in neuroscience research as part of the National Institute of Health Clinical Research Tr
