PDF of CV

Dr. Snyder joined UBNS in 2011 after completing his fellowship training in endovascular neurosurgery with UB Neurosurgery and spent 6 months as a research fellow at the Barrow Neurological Institute under Dr. Robert Spetzler. He completed his neurosurgical residency at UB and received his PhD in biophysics under the guidance of Dr. Frederick Sachs specializing in mechanoelectric transduction of cellular membranes. He is trained in all general neurosurgical procedures, including brain tumor, spine, and peripheral nerve surgery.

Dr. Snyder's extra training in open cerebrovascular techniques and well as his endovascular fellowship give him the necessary tool set for specialization in the comprehensive management of neurovascular pathology in both the brain and spinal cord, including treatment of aneurysms, arteriovenous malformations, arteriovenous fistulas, and stroke. He has special interests and expertise in physiological imaging of the brain and its use in the evaluation and management of acute stroke patients, as well as all endovascular techniques for acute stroke intervention for both extracranial and intracranial vascular occlusive disease.

Dr. Snyder has been awarded a Congress of Neurological Surgeons Vascular Fellowship for Cerebrovascular Research, a Toshiba Stroke Imaging Research Fellowship, the Gold Humanism in Excellence in Teaching, and been named the UB Neurosurgery Resident of the Year.

Active research interests include use of CT Perfusion (CTP) for acute stroke management, application of perfusion imaging to on table angiography, glasses free 3D imaging in both the operating room and endovascular suite, as well as basic science research on the role of mechanosensitive ion channels in both in aneurysm formation and vasospasm. He has published numerous articles and holds multiple patents. He is an active member of several national neurosurgical and interventional organizations and has given multiple CME lectures nationwide on the role of CTP in endovascular stroke management.
