Aaron S. Dumont, M.D.

Dr. Aaron Dumont was born and raised in Abbotsford, British Columbia, Canada and attended the University of British Columbia in Vancouver for his undergraduate studies. He completed medical school at the University of Calgary. He completed his residency training at the University of Virginia under the tutelage of Drs. John Jane, Sr., Neal Kassell, Edward Laws, Ladislau Steiner and Mark and Chris Shaffrey, among others. He subsequently completed a fellowship in cerebrovascular, endovascular and skull base surgery at the University of Virginia. He was on faculty at the University of Virginia for three years prior to moving to Thomas Jefferson University in Philadelphia where he worked under the leadership of Dr. Robert Rosenwasser. He was promoted to Professor of Neurosurgery and Director of the Division of Cerebrovascular and Endovascular Surgery. Dr. Dumont was recruited to Tulane University in New Orleans in 2013 where he is currently the Charles B. Wilson Professor & Chair of the Department of Neurosurgery and was recently named Director of the newly created Tulane Center for Clinical Neurosciences which unifies neurology and neurosurgery clinical care, teaching and research.

Dr. Dumont’s clinical and research interests have focused on cerebral vascular disease and stroke, although he maintains interests in all areas of adult and pediatric neurosurgery. He has received research support from the American Heart Association and was the recipient of the Charles Elsberg Fellowship from the New York Academy of Medicine as well as a young Clinician Investigator Award from the Neurosurgery Research and Education Foundation. He has been funded by the National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke for the investigation of the inflammation and oxidative stress in the formation, progression and rupture of cerebral aneurysms. His laboratory is actively investigating molecular mechanisms underlying the pathogenesis of cerebral aneurysms with the goal of developing novel minimally invasive or non-invasive therapies. He also has research interests in endovascular device and technology development. He has over 200 scientific publications and currently serves on the Editorial Boards of 11 journals (including Stroke since 2005 and the Journal of Neurosurgery since 2014).

Dr. Dumont received his MBA in 2016 from the University of Texas at Dallas/ UT Southwestern Medical Center, focused on Medical Management.

Dr. Dumont and his wife Michelle have 3 children – Ashby, Hunter and Lauren.
