About Dr. Cawley

Upon graduating from the University of Maryland School of Medicine Magna Cum Laude in 1990, Dr. Cawley entered neurosurgical residency training at Emory University. He then completed fellowships in Cerebrovascular Surgery at the University of Florida and in Interventional Neuroradiology at Emory University, where he joined the Neurosurgical Faculty in 1998. Dr. Cawley has been practicing cerebrovascular and endovascular procedures for almost 20 years. During that time he was instrumental in gaining Comprehensive Stroke Center designation for Emory University Hospital (the first in the state). He also has participated in one of the nation’s elite training fellowships in cerebrovascular & endovascular neurosurgery. This fellowship was among the first to receive CAST certification.

Dr. Cawley currently is a Professionalessor of Neurosurgery and Radiology, and is the Section Chief and Director of Endovascular Neurosurgery & Interventional Radiology for Emory Healthcare. He has been a member of the Alpha Omega Alpha Honor Medical Society since 1989, is certified by the American Board of Neurological Surgeons, and served on the Executive Committee of the Congress of Neurological Surgeons. He also maintains leadership and membership positions in several medical societies, including the American Association of Neurological Surgeons, the Joint Section on Cerebrovascular Diseases and the American Society of Neurointerventional Surgery.

Dr. Cawley's clinical and research interests lie in the treatment of neurovascular disorders via both surgical and endovascular means. He is an active member of The Emory MBNA Stroke Center, which combines the expertise of cerebrovascular neurosurgeons, interventional neuroradiologists, stroke neurologists and neurointensivists, and has developed one of the largest clinical experiences in the nation.
