GARY CIMENT is an expert in Neurological and surgical Anatomy
My expertise is in human anatomy as it applies to surgical and neurological cases. I am currently a Professor (tenured) in the School of Medicine at Oregon Health & Sciences University (OHSU). Over my 30 year career at OHSU, I have directed the courses in anatomy and neuroanatomy for the medical students, medical residents, and physicians. I have been the recipient of numerous teaching awards that attest to my effectiveness and “likeability” as a communicator.
As an expert witness, I’ve consulted for both defendants and plaintiffs (about 50:50), and have been certified to testify in Oregon and California Courts.
