DR. PATRICK DOHERTY earned his B.A. from Johns Hopkins and his M.D. from the University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey–Robert Wood Johnson School of Medicine. He completed his training in neurosurgery at the University of Maryland in Baltimore. He is chief of neurosurgery at Lawrence & Memorial Hospital in New London.
Dr. Doherty believes that neurosurgery offers “an intense window into a patient’s life and the opportunity to treat disabling conditions of the nervous system through surgery.” Though certainly treating brain pathology, he focuses most of his time and energy on spine care. With his colleagues in neurosurgery (Dr. Stanley Pugsley, Dr. Victoria Samuels and Arthur Welch, PA-C), orthopedic spine surgery, pain management and physiatry, he offers a comprehensive, multidisciplinary approach to spinal care. “Our goal,” he says, “is to cure, manage or relieve symptoms through surgical or nonsurgical means, to restore neurologic and physical function, and to care for the whole patient.”
