Dr. Steven Kalkanis Enrolled in Neurological Society

Dr. Steven Kalkanis

Dr. Steven N. Kalkanis, a new member of Leadership 100, was acknowledged by The Society of Neurological Surgeons with membership in 2016. He is professor and, following a national search in 2014, Chair of the Department of Neurosurgery and Co-Director of the Neuroscience Institute at Henry Ford Health System in Detroit, Michigan, where he also serves as Director of the Henry Ford Cancer Institute. Dr. Kalkanis joined Henry Ford in 2004 after completing his neurosurgical training at Massachusetts General Hospital. He graduated with highest honors from Harvard University, where he was awarded the John Harvard Scholarship, and then Harvard Medical School, where he served as Class Marshal and received the Linnane Prize for highest academic achievement.

In 2009, Dr. Kalkanis led a multidisciplinary team of experts to publish the first and largest set of guidelines to date in organized neurosurgery on the clinical treatment pathways for metastatic brain tumors. Since that time, he has chaired the guidelines efforts of the Joint Section on Tumors and was the founding chair of the Congress of Neurological Surgeons (CNS) Guidelines Committee. Dr. Kalkanis also serves as a vice-chair on the Joint Guidelines Committee and has helped to spearhead ten separate clinical practice guidelines in a myriad of neurosurgical topics.

Dr. Kalkanis has served on the Executive Committee of the Congress of Neurological Surgeons since 2009, and was recently elected as Chair for the Section on Tumors. He also is currently both the Annual Meeting Chair and the Secretary of the CNS.

With the goal of refining future personalized medicine treatment protocols, and as the Mark Rosenblum Endowed Chair in Neurosurgery, Dr. Kalkanis runs a funded translational research laboratory investigating the molecular genetic differences between short-and long-term glioma survivors. Specializing in brain tumor surgery, he has been involved in numerous clinical trials for brain tumors and has authored over 100 peer reviewed publications.

Steve and his wife, Laurel, have three children, Nicholas, Connor and Grace.
