Dr. Rajiv Midha was born in India in 1962 and immigrated to North America in 1972. He received his medical degree (1987), MSc (under Susan Mackinnon’s supervision, 1991), and neurosurgical training (1995) from the University of Toronto. He obtained clinical fellowships in peripheral nerve neurosurgery at St. Michaels’ Hospital in Toronto and at Louisiana State University in New Orleans (under David Kline). Dr. Midha has published over 135 peer-reviewed articles and sections in textbooks totaling over 300 publications, most in peripheral nerve neurobiology and surgery. He has co-edited three textbooks on peripheral nerve surgery. Dr Midha is internationally recognized as an authority on peripheral nerve surgery; he has given over 250 lectures worldwide and served as past president of the two foremost international societies in this specialty, American Society for Peripheral Nerve and the Sunderland Society. In addition, he is the section editor and board member for peripheral nerve for the three most prominent neurosurgery journals: Journal of Neurosurgery, Neurosurgery, and World Neurosurgery.

Dr. Midha runs a peer-reviewed, funded basic science laboratory investigation on nerve regeneration and is a Neuroscientist member and executive member of the Hotchkiss Brain Institute (HBI) at the University of Calgary. He has a special interest in peripheral nerve function, injury, repair, grafting, and regeneration. Recently, the research lab’s main thrust has been on developing novel cell-based therapies to improve outcome from nerve repair.

Dr. Midha is presently Professor and Head of the Department of Clinical Neurosciences at the University of Calgary, which is highly academic, composed of over 100 faculty, and organized into Divisions of Neurology, Neurosurgery, Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation, and Translational Neurosciences.
