About me

Daniel Felbaum, MD, is an endovascular neurosurgeon and member of the American Academy of Neurological Surgeons (AANS), the North American Skull Base Society (NASBS), and the Congress of Neurological Surgeons (CNS).

Dr. Felbaum is specialty trained and highly experienced in cerebrovascular, neuroendovascular, and general neurosurgery using both minimally invasive (percutaneous) methods and traditionally invasive operations for neurovascular diseases. As part of a team of neurosurgeons at MedStar Washington Hospital Center and MedStar Georgetown University Hospital, he is dedicated to creating individualized treatment plans for each patient that are delivered with collaborative care.

He is passionate about providing stroke management and treatment as well as neuroendovascular surgery options to patients in the Washington, D.C. region. Dr. Felbaum and his team are implementing an interventional treatment for strokes, called mechanical thrombolysis, focused on improving outcomes for stroke patients.

Dr. Felbaum received his medical degree from Marshall University School of Medicine, where he was inducted into the Alpha Omega Alpha Honor Medical Society. He then joined MedStar Georgetown University Hospital for a six-year residency in neurological surgery before completing specialty fellowship training in combined open cerebrovascular with endovascular neurosurgery and neurocritical care at the Global Neurosciences Institute in Philadelphia. He has presented nationally on numerous occasions and has been published in several peer-review publications and book chapters on cerebrovascular neurosurgery and trauma.

Dr. Felbaum is fluent in Tagalog (the official language of the Philippines).

Philosophy of Care

“My philosophy of care is best defined as trying to embody the motto "cura personalis," or care of the whole person. I recognize that each individual is a unique person and therefore will have distinct goals for his or her care. The care I provide is deeply rooted in compassion and patience, allowing me to fully understand the goals of my patients.

“I’m always available to collaborate with referring physicians in the care of a patient.”
