A clinically integrated network of physicians and providers employed by UChicago Medicine who offer care in inpatient, community, ambulatory, acute care or extended care settings.


Paramita Das, MD, MS, is a neurosurgeon with expertise in skull base tumors and in trauma neurosurgery. She has advanced training in endoscopic and open approaches to the skull base with a particular interest in minimally invasive approaches. She has an interest in facial pain disorders and offers microvascular decompression, balloon compression, and radiofrequency rhizotomy. With the opening of the University of Chicago Level 1 trauma center she is an integral part of the neurosurgical trauma team caring for critically ill patients and managing head trauma and spine pathology.

Dr. Das conducts medical research in addition to her clinical work. Her scholarly work in brain tumors involves understanding the oncogenesis of tumors, epidemiology of brain tumors, and understanding the best treatment strategies for improving quality of life. She is working to combine the knowledge of the genetics of tumors with outcomes data so that we may be able to treat based on a better understanding of the course of the disease. She also is interested in outcomes after traumatic brain injury and associated biomarkers.
