Dr. R. Webster Crowley is an Assistant Professor of Neurosurgery and Radiology at the University of Virginia.  He is a neurosurgeon who specializes in both endovascular and open surgical techniques for the treatment of cerebrovascular disorders.

Dr. Crowley was born in Washington D.C., and raised in Bethesda, Maryland.  He graduated from the University of Iowa, where he was a member of the Varsity football team.  Before going to medical school he worked for the Health, Education, Labor and Pension Committee of the United States Senate in Washington D.C., and received a Master’s degree from the Medical College of Pennsylvania/Hahnemann University.  He subsequently received his medical degree from the George Washington University School of Medicine in Washington, D.C.  After completion of medical school, he came to Charlottesville where he performed his neurosurgery residency at the University of Virginia.  His residency included several months working at the Veteran’s hospital in Salem, Virginia, and a year-long general neurosurgery fellowship at Auckland City Hospital in Auckland, New Zealand.  Upon completion of his Chief Resident year, Dr. Crowley spent two years performing an endovascular neurosurgery fellowship at the Barrow Neurological Institute in Phoenix, Arizona.  During his residency and fellowship, Dr. Crowley published over 50 articles and book chapters, the vast majority of which focus on cerebrovascular disease.  He serves as a member of the Research Committee and Education Committee of the Congress of Neurological Surgeons, as well as the Fellowship Committee of the Society of NeuroInterventional Surgeons.  

Dr. Crowley is now one of a small number of physicians who are able to perform both open cerebrovascular and endovascular procedures for the treatment of intracranial and spinal vascular disorders.  This gives Dr. Crowley the ability to work with patients in order to tailor a treatment plan that is specific to their individual situation and wishes.

Dr. Crowley is married to Dr. Angela Crowley, a rheumatologist practicing in Charlottesville.  They live in Charlottesville, and have a son, Colin.
