Recognized as one of the top practitioners in her field, neurosurgeon and spine surgeon Sagun Tuli, M.D. attended medical school at the University of Toronto, an institution of higher learning on the cutting edge of health research and education. Laying a solid foundation for her future career accomplishments, Dr. Tuli delved into her studies with drive and focus, an approach she brings to her current surgical and clinical responsibilities at the Center for Advanced Brain and Spine Surgery in Natick, Massachusetts. Following the completion of her doctoral coursework in 1993, Sagun Tuli moved on to fulfill her residency requirements at the University of Toronto, a seven-year undertaking that provided her with the experience and expertise necessary to reach the upper echelons of her profession.
Prior to becoming a Fellow of the Royal College of Surgeons of Canada in 2000, Sagun Tuli opted to expand her already comprehensive knowledge base by enrolling in a Master’s level epidemiology program at Harvard School of Public Health. She obtained her M.Sc. in Epidemiology in 1998. After a productive tenure as an Assistant Professor of Spine Surgery and Neurosurgery at the University of Toronto, a role she maintained in tandem with duties as an Affiliate Member of the Department of Clinical Epidemiology at Women’s College Hospital, Dr. Tuli accepted an offer to serve as an Instructor at Harvard Medical School. Settling down in Boston for the long-term in 2002, she was eventually named an Assistant Professor of Neurosurgery at Harvard and appointed as an Attending Physician at Brigham and Women’s Hospital, Faulkner Hospital, and the Dana Farber Cancer Institute.
Firmly committed to remaining abreast of the most recent developments in her field of practice, Sagun Tuli holds membership with a number of professional societies including the American Association of Neurological Surgeons and the Congress of Neurological Surgeons. Her most recent research focuses on spinal cord metastasis and how the condition affects a patient’s overall quality of life.
