Dr. Jeevan is a compassionate and caring adult and pediatric neurosurgeon. Born in London, England he completed a Masters in Neurosciences at Cambridge University, UK. He went on to attend Oxford University School of Medicine, UK, to attain his medical degree and graduate with merit. After completing two years of post-graduate training at Oxford's John Radcliffe Hospital, Dr. Jeevan immigrated to the USA where he completed his Neurosurgical Residency and Chief Residency at New York Medical College. During that time he also served as a fellow in Complex Spine. After completing his training, Dr. Jeevan pursued sub-specialty training in Pediatric Neurosurgery at the prestigious Hospital for Sick Children at the University of Toronto in Canada.
After fellowship, he joined the Department of Neurological Surgery at Baylor Scott and White in Temple, TX as an Assistant Professor of Neurosurgery co-ordinated neurosurgical care at McClane Children's Hospital. There he cared for pediatric patients with brain and spinal cord tumors, congenital spinal anomalies, hydrocephalus, and traumatic brain and spinal cord injury. He also directed the movement disorder program and re-established a Deep Brain Simulator program for the management of movement disorders.
Dr. Jeevan specializes in the diagnosis and treatment of a broad range of pediatric brain and spinal disorders, including hydrocephalus, craniosynostosis, spasticity, spinal dysraphisms, epilepsy, and vascular malformations such as Moyamoya, arteriovenous malformations, and cavernous malformations. While practicing a broad range of pediatric neurosurgery, his sub-specialty interests lie in the treatment of congenital craniovertebral junction anomalies, cervical spine trauma, and functional neurosurgery.
To decrease operative time and morbidity as well as hospital stay he utilizes endoscopic assistance to perform common procedures through smaller incisions. This is currently seen in the management of craniosynostosis, Chiari malformations and certain forms of hydrocephalus.
Dr. Jeevan also practices general adult neurosurgery, focusing on primary brain tumors and brain metastasis, cervical and lumbar herniated discs, and spinal degeneration and fractures, utilizing advanced minimally invasive surgical techniques where applicable. He is interested in continuing care of adults with congenital pediatric neurosurgical pathology such as hydrocephalus (including normal pressure hydrocephalus), epilepsy, tethered cords, Chiari malformations, and spasticity.
Along with Dr. Patel, Dr. Jeevan continues to grow a movement disorder program throughout central texas, utilizing Deep Brain Stimulation to treat movement disorders such as Parkinson's Disease, dystonia, and essential tremor, along with other disorders.
Throughout his career Dr. Jeevan has been actively involved in neuroscience research with interests in craniofacial anomalies, publishing a landmark study in associated venous anomalies. He has also advocated for radiation reduction in the imaging of pediatric head trauma, and new techniques in neuro-imaging. He has published academic papers in leading journals and textbooks, including the Journal of Neurosurgery, Child's Nervous System, and Anticancer Research.
