About me

As a neurological surgeon at Ohio State, I specialize in open and endovascular neurosurgery. I believe in delivering the best possible care to patients when treating their conditions.

Because of my dual training in open and endovascular neurosurgery, I can focus on the optimal treatment for each patient rather than focusing on a technique of therapy. Being at the forefront of new treatments for neurovascular disease that have had a positive impact on patient outcomes fuels my passion for my career.

What I love most about working at Ohio State are the extensive resources that are available to patients. Everything a patient needs for his or her treatment and recovery, from the intensive care unit to the nationally recognized on-site rehabilitation institute, Dodd Hall, is right here at Ohio State. Because of these resources, we are able to provide the most complete care for our patients.

When I’m not at the hospital, I enjoy using Ohio State’s Recreation & Physical Activity Center (RPAC) and spending time with my family.

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. Nimjee has reported no financial relationships with medical device, research and/or drug companies.
