Dr. Shawn Hervey-Jumper is a neurosurgeon specializing in the treatment of patients with brain tumors, including low- and high-grade gliomas, meningiomas, brain metastases and neurocutaneous syndromes.

Hervey-Jumper's research investigates how brain tumors violate important areas of the brain that affect how we move, speak and think. He also explores strategies to promote brain recovery and repair. In addition, he researches ways to map the human brain during surgery with the goal of limiting injury to key functional areas.

Hervey-Jumper received his medical degree from the Ohio State University College of Medicine. He completed both a residency in neurosurgery and a fellowship in neuro-oncology at the University of Michigan. He then completed a clinical fellowship in neuro-oncology at UCSF.

Hervey-Jumper is a member of the Society for Neuro-Oncology, American Association for Cancer Research, North American Skull Base Society, American Association of Neurological Surgeons (AANS) and Congress of Neurological Surgeons (CNS). He is also a member of the joint section on tumors for the latter organizations. He is an associate professor in residence of neurological surgery at UCSF.
