Dr. Beecher received his undergraduate degree from Miami university in 2005 with a double major in zoology and a minor in neuroscience. In 2009, he graduated from Touro University of Osteopathic Medicine, and then continued his training with a neurosurgical residency at North Shore University Hospital/Hofstra University which she completed in 2015. He is a board-certified neurosurgeon who is cultivating an entirely new spectrum of care for patients in Wilmington. His unique training includes two fellowships, one in cerebrovascular, Neurosurgery, and the other in endovascular Neurosurgery. This sub specialized training is giving him the necessary skills to provide comprehensive treatment and management of cerebrovascular disease. He was the first dual trained neurosurgeon in the region. Dr. Beecher treats complex cerebrovascular disease as well as complex brain tumors utilizing the most intricate and advanced surgical approaches, as well as the most cutting edge technology, to provide patients with maximal surgical success for the best outcomes.
