Jeffrey S. Raskin is a board eligible pediatric neurosurgeon trained in general pediatric neurosurgery with special interest in functional and epilepsy surgery. He was recruited as tenure track Assistant Professor by Andrew Jea and Nicholas Barbaro to the section of pediatric neurosurgery at Riley Hospital for Children, Indiana University and Goodman Campbell Brain and Spine. As co-director of epilepsy surgery, Dr. Raskin is expanding the comprehensive epilepsy center to include cutting-edge technology like responsive neurostimulation and robotic neurosurgery with laser interstitial thermal therapy for the treatment of neurooncology and epilepsy diagnoses. As director of movement disorders, Dr. Raskin has developed clinical care pathways and multidisciplinary pathways for the treatment of dystonia and spasticity, including deep brain stimulation, intrathecal baclofen, and selective dorsal rhizotomy.
Dr. Raskin is a member of the AANS and the CNS. He is an ad hoc reviewer for multiple neurosurgical journals and has published papers and book chapters with a subject predominance in quality and safety in neurosurgery as well as functional neurosurgery. Aside from ongoing clinical research, Dr. Raskin has conducted bench research in learning and memory, brainstem control circuits in vasospasm, and functional partners of cone arrestin during phototransduction
