Dr. Bender is an Associate Professor of Neurosurgery, Neurology, Imaging Sciences in the Division of Stroke and Cerebrovascular Disease.

Clinical interests: Dr. Bender specializes the management of ischemic and hemorrhagic stroke and underlying pathologies, including brain aneurysms, cranial and spinal vascular malformations, moyamoya disease, and carotid atherosclerosis. He offers patients both endovascular and open surgical treatments depending on individualized consideration of invasiveness, risk, and durability.

Cerebrovascular neurosurgery is one of medicine’s frontiers and Dr. Bender has introduced several new procedures to the University of Rochester, including radial angiography and intervention, middle meningeal artery embolization for subdural hematoma, and digital spinal myelography for the identification of CSF-venous fistulae. He performs traditional microsurgical aneurysm clipping, AVM resection, and direct cerebral arterial bypass. Dr. Bender also has broad experience in general neurosurgery, including spine pathology, primary and metastatic brain tumors, trigeminal neuralgia, chiari malformation, and hydrocephalus.

Research: Dr. Bender’s laboratory investigates cerebral arterial thrombus, a biospecimen to which neurosurgeons performing endovascular thrombectomy for large vessel occlusion ischemic stroke have privileged access. The lab employs mass spectrometry as an unbiased and quantitative tool to understand the proteomic makeup of stroke thrombus. This research is illuminating causes of ischemic stroke and helping developing new therapeutic strategies.

Dr. Bender also believes in the importance of rigorously analyzing clinical practice and sharing novel insights. Among his clinical research interests are: cerebral aneurysm flow diversion, mechanical thrombectomy sub-populations and interventional technique, and mobile stroke technology.

Background: Dr. Bender completed Neurological Surgery residency and a two-year enfolded Endovascular Neurosurgery fellowship at the Johns Hopkins Hospital. He grew up in Hamburg, NY, and graduated summa cum laude from Yale. Dr. Bender worked for two years as a management consultant in the Chicago office of McKinsey & Co before attending medical school at Johns Hopkins.

Dr. Bender's interaction with me was indifferent at best. His PA was very helpful.

[...] Dr. Bender has been quite callous on a previous visit. [...]He was more attentive and the last visit spent more time with us. That doesn't give us any answers though. He has ordered a couple of tests for next month.

I felt like he took me seriously and explained the risks and chance of benefit for the test he proposed. He made sure that I understood that it was my decision whether to move forward or not.

I was in the office less than 5 min. w/dr. - Very detached, short, never looked @ me, looked @ computer.

Dr. Bender thoroughly went through my tests & determined a far less invasive plan for my problem. As it turns out my original problem was misdiagnosed by my original doctor & in my opinion Dr. Bender saved my life. His concern for patient care is extraordinary. It's not about the procedure for him, it's about what's best for the patient. [...].

I think he was in the room maybe 5 minutes and my questions were not answered and got nowhere with this appointment. I felt he was in a hurry and that he seemed annoyed by me questioning him.[...]
