Healthpointe is welcoming to its team Dr. Edward Thomas Chappell, a neurosurgeon and spine specialist. Dr. Chappell is practicing neurosurgery and spine surgery out of Healthpointe’s clinics in Ontario, Irwindale, and Colton.
Dr. Chappell’s remarkable medical career began in his teens, when, in his small hometown of Elizabeth City, North Carolina, he worked as an orderly in an emergency room. Dr. Chappell would later go on to earn scholarships for Research Triangle Park, and receive his bachelor’s degree in chemistry at the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill and master’s degree in neurophysiology at North Carolina State University.
Dr. Chappell then attended the Wake Forrest University Bowman Gray School of Medicine. His outstanding performance as a medical student earned him a position to train in neurosurgery at the George Washington University in Washington, D.C. (the hospital to the president in times of emergency).
For sixteen years after his extended residency training, Dr. Chappell has been working for the University of California, San Francisco and the University of California, San Diego. In addition to practicing neurosurgery at Healthpointe, Dr. Chappell resides as a professor of neurosurgery at the University of California , Irvine. With his specialized training in skull base surgery, stereotaxic techniques, and spine techniques, Dr. Chappell has presented at conferences on brain trauma, brain tumors, and spine surgery, and has published related textbook chapters and articles.
Dr. Chappell has always attended to those patients with the least resources and most advanced diseases, and is known throughout the Southern California medical community for his kindness and integrity.
