About MeI am a dual-trained vascular and endovascular neurosurgeon, fully trained in all facets of vascular disease. I am one of only a handful of dual-trained neurosurgeons nationwide. I specialize in treatment of aneurysms, brain arteriovenous malformations, cranial and spinal fistulae, spinal vascular malformations and intracranial and extracranial carotid stenosis and disease. I can treat with open surgical clipping, resection or bypass. Also, I specialize in endovascular techniques such as coiling, stunting and flow diversion. I am trained in gamma knife radiosurgery for treatment of vascular diseases and tumors.
Additionally, I provide surgical treatment for spine disease that include cervical stenosis, cervical disc disease, lumbar stenosis, lumbar disc disease, spinal tumors, anterior cervical discectomy fusion, lumbar discectomy, cervical fusion, lumbar fusion and transforaminal lumbar fusion at The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center.
My patient care philosophy is to always treat patients with the utmost compassion and respect. I treat every patient as if they are a member of my family, and strive to always provide the highest level of care. I try to understand the unique needs and desires of each and every patient to preserve or maintain quality of life.

Consulting and Related Relationships
At The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center, we support a faculty member’s research and consulting in collaboration with medical device, research and/or drug companies because a faculty member’s expertise can guide important advancements in the practice of medicine and improve patient care. In order to provide effective management of these relationships, the University requires annual disclosures from all faculty members with external interests related to their University responsibilities.
As of 03/28/2017, Dr. Youssef has reported no financial relationships with medical device, research and/or drug companies.
