Dr. Jagid specializes in the field of stereotactic neurosurgery and movement disorders and is Neurosurgical Director of the Deep Brain Stimulation Program at the University of Miami. He trained at the University of Miami under mentorship of Dr. Howard Landy and later Dr. James Schumacher.

Originally from New York, Dr. Jagid obtained his BS degree in Mechanical Engineering at the University of Rochester, New York in 1988. At Colombia University he obtained his Pre-medical education and in 1994 he completed his medical education at New York Medical College in Valhalla, New York.

He has spent the last eleven years at the University of Miami where he completed his residency in Neurological Surgery in 2001 and joined the faculty. His practice focuses on the surgical management of movement disorders, spasticity, neuro-oncology, functional neurosurgery, trigeminal neuralgia, stereotactic radiosurgery and head injury.

Patient Comments

Very good service!

Nice competent nurse.


Dr Jagid is EXCELLENT Dr. He saved my life. Only problem with appointment was that his office had moved to hospital across the street and we weren’t informed in advance.
