Board Certified in Neurosurgery
Dr. Dustin Hayward is an expert in cerebrovascular, endovascular, and brain tumor surgery. He's been practicing since 2016 and treats several disorders with open and minimally invasive techniques, including cerebral aneurysms, arteriovenous malformations, dural arteriovenous fistulas, subarachnoid hemorrhages, stroke; neurosurgical oncology including all varieties of brain tumors; spinal disorders such as spinal stenosis and spinal instability; and general neurosurgical conditions. He is post-residency fellowship trained in cerebrovascular and endovascular neurosurgery.

My philosophy of care is straightforward: my patient and I are a team. We make all decisions together because we want the same things. Surgery is not the answer for everyone, but when surgery is the right decision, I consider it my duty to perform a technically excellent service for my patient.
Personal Information
When I am not with patients, I enjoy time with my wife and son. We are fortunate to live in the Pacific Northwest, and love exploring the area.
