About Dickey, Phillip S.

DR. PHILLIP DICKEY is that rare doctor with a broad range of expertise and skills in a field where there is no room for error. He became a neurosurgeon because he finds it exciting, dramatic and intellectually stimulating and says, “You can actually cure a person of something that is really scary. It involves thinking on your feet. It’s challenging.”

Dr. Dickey, who is in solo private practice, completed his internship and residency at Yale-New Haven Hospital. He is also an assistant clinical professor at the Yale University School of Medicine. Patients find his office setting more tranquil than a hospital atmosphere. He sees new patients on Thursdays and spend a lot of time talking to them, getting them to feel relaxed. Dr. Dickey specializes in spinal surgery, in which he utilizes minimally invasive techniques and modern instrumentation where necessary. He also performs intracranial surgery for meningioma, acoustic neuroma and pituitary tumors where “the technique is so delicate and precise because nerve tissue is involved,” he notes.
