Dr. Michael Sughrue, M.D., assistant professor, Department of Neurosurgery, will be the speaker at a Special Medical Information Forum being held on Thursday, June 15, at 2 p.m. at Arvest’s Eastside Branch, 4225 SE Adams Rd., Bartlesville, Okla.*, in the Celebrity Room. You may have seen Dr. Sughrue in the news utilizing a cutting-edge technique for brain surgery where the patient is wide-awake or most recently, for operating successfully on a patient for what had been called an inoperable brain tumor.
Dr. Sughrue is a native Oklahoman from Bartlesville, who attended his undergraduate studies at the University of Oklahoma. After training at several world-renowned brain tumor centers, he returned to Oklahoma to provide world class care to Oklahomans with complex brain tumors. He was a founding member and is current director of the Comprehensive Brain Tumor Center at OU Medical Center’s Stevenson Cancer Center. 
His practice focuses entirely on adult brain tumors, and he performs nearly 400 brain tumor operations per year. His specific interests include removal of gliomas from critical brain regions such as speech and motor parts of the brain, skull base surgery, keyhole brain surgery, endonasal endoscopic skull base surgery, and acoustic neuroma surgery. Dr Sughrue has published over 140 publications in the scientific literature, and has co-edited several textbooks. He is an innovator in minimally invasive brain tumor surgery and has taught courses to neurosurgeons all over the world about how to perform these operations.
In addition, using advanced language mapping techniques, he is often able to successfully remove many brain tumors deemed inoperable at other centers. The language mapping effort he established at OU is one of the busiest awake brain surgery programs in the United States, performing several awake brain surgeries a month.
