Richard Rovin, MD, is a board-certified neurosurgeon who provides personalized, multidisciplinary care to patients with brain and spinal cord disorders. Working with the Aurora Neuroscience Innovation Institute (ANII) team of multidisciplinary neuroscience experts, he is skilled in the revolutionary Expanded Endonasal Approach, a minimally invasive surgical technique that allows for skull-base brain tumors and lesions to be removed through the nose. This innovative concept allows direct access to the tumor, eliminating the need to move critical structures to reach the tumor.

Prior to serving as medical director, he worked as chief of surgery at Marquette General Hospital and then chief of staff. He expanded his practice into teaching as well, serving as a clinical assistant professor at Michigan State University's Department of Surgery in the College of Human Medicine.
