After a couple of years getting things in place – and a pandemic to wait out – the new M Health Fairview positional plagiocephaly clinic is now open in Maplewood on the east side of the Twin Cities Metro area.


In May of 2012, Neurosurgery Department Professor Emeritus Stephen Haines, MD, and his late father, Gerald Haines, MD, PhD, established the Haines Family Lectureship on Clinical Research in Neurosurgery.


Two new residents began their seven-year journey with the Department on July 1, 2023. Both bring unique perspectives and extensive experience to their residency.
