Dr. Adler has been in Portland since 1999 after having spent three years as a faculty member at State University of New York, in Brooklyn. He is now in private practice with focus on the neurosurgical treatment of brain tumors as well as the minimally invasive treatment of spine tumors, both primary and metastatic. Other areas of interest include neurocritical care as it applies to brain and spinal cord injury and the application of multimodal monitoring for critically ill neurosurgical patients. In measuring brain oxygen, blood flow, brain glucose and other metabolites, the technique of cerebral microdialysis has become a mainstay in helping improve the outcome of his patients. Dr. Adler performs most of his surgeries at Legacy Emanuel Medical Center. He is part of the trauma team there. Hobbies include: Playing the Piano
