Jason Scott Hauptman, MD, PhD

Seattle Children’s – Visiting

As a pediatric neurosurgeon, my job is to take care of children with a wide variety of neurological conditions. My mission is to deliver the absolute best care to each and every child, and to do it with compassion and diligence. I also am working hard to increase our understanding and approach to neurological illness through a variety of research efforts and by collaborating with incredible colleagues in the laboratory and at all stages of healthcare delivery. I look forward to meeting you!

I was born in Long Island, New York and grew up in central New Jersey. After high school I attended Muhlenberg College, a liberal arts school in Pennsylvania where I received a BA in Psychology and a BS in Biology. From there I returned to New Jersey for medical school. Then, I moved across the county to Los Angeles were I trained in neurosurgery at UCLA under Dr. Neil Martin. During my residency, I earned a PhD in Neuroscience studying the ways nerve cells communicate and potentially contribute to epilepsy in diseases like cortical dysplasia and tuberous sclerosis. After residency, I went on to complete a fellowship in pediatric neurosurgery at the Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh. I went on to become regional pediatric and epilepsy neurosurgeon for Kaiser Permanente in Los Angeles for two years before being recruited to join the fantastic team here at Seattle Children’s Hospital. I feel very fortunate to have the opportunity to work with stellar colleagues at this world-class institution.
