About Me

Dr. Walter is Chief of Neurosurgery at UR Medicine's Highland Hospital and an Associate Professor of Neurosurgery and Oncology at the University of Rochester Medical Center. He obtained his medical degree and completed neurosurgical residency training at Johns Hopkins University and Hospital, where he also completed a National Cancer Institute sponsored fellowship in neuro-oncology.

Following completion of residency training he served on the faculty at the University of Pittsburgh, where he was named director of adult neuro-oncology, and was recruited to the University of Rochester in 2007.
Dr. Walter performs brain and spinal tumor surgeries at both Strong Memorial Hospital and Rochester General Hospital. He sees patients in clinic at Strong Memorial Hospital, Rochester General Hospital, and Clifton Springs Hospital, and has special expertise in image guided neurosurgery, radiosurgery, and complex spinal surgery for tumors.
He runs an active clinical research program that is involved in evaluating experimental therapeutics for patients with brain and spinal cancer. He is particularly interested in developing therapies that not only extend survival, but that also improve the quality of life for people afflicted with these diseases. He runs a research laboratory at the University of Rochester that seeks to develop new targets for tumors.
