Emanuela Binello, MD, PhD, ScD
Assistant Professor of Neurosurgery,
Dr. Binello completed her medical education at Harvard Medical School and was in the Health Sciences and Technology (HST) society. At the same time, she completed a doctorate of science in HST through the Medical Engineering and Medical Physics program of the Harvard-MIT Division of HST, including extensive experience as a clinical teaching assistant and clinical trial coordinator. This was the culmination of her educational experience in the Boston area, having previously completed a bachelor's degree in Russian Studies, and bachelor’s, master’s and doctor of philosophy degrees in Nuclear Engineering at MIT.
Dr. Binello then completed her residency training in New York City at the Mount Sinai School of Medicine. This involved one year as a general surgery intern, followed by six years as a neurosurgery resident, the last year of which she served as Chief Resident. She gained significant operative experience with a high-volume and wide variety of neurosurgery cases at the Mount Sinai Medical Center in Manhattan, as well as its affiliated level one trauma center in Queens. She trained in pituitary surgery with Dr. Kalmon Post, widely recognized for his expertise in this area. During residency, Dr. Binello also served as a research fellow in the Brain Tumor and Gene Therapy Laboratory at Mount Sinai. She was awarded first place for best resident research presentation two years in a row by the New York State Neurosurgical Society and was the recipient of the Kalmon D. Post Publication Award at the Mount Sinai School of Medicine.
In July 2013, Dr. Binello joined the Boston Medical Center Department of Neurosurgery. Her clinical expertise encompasses brain and spine surgery, as well as pituitary and peripheral nerve surgery. She has presented and published her work at the state, national and international levels. Dr. Binello was named as Director of Neurosurgical Oncology, based on her achievements in this area. She is a member of several professional societies, including the Congress of Neurosurgery, American Association of Neurological Surgeons, Society for Neurooncology and the Sigma Xi Scientific Research Society.
