HCRN Investigator Wellons Moves to Nashville

Dr. Jay Wellons has recently been recruited to Vanderbilt to lead their Division of Pediatric Neurosurgery. He is now Professor of Neurosurgery at Vanderbilt University Medical Center and the Chief of Pediatric Neurosurgery at the Monroe Carell Jr. Children’s Hospital at Vanderbilt. This is a significant milestone in his neurosurgical career. Congratulations Jay and best wishes in this new challenge!

Dr. Wellons will continue his Investigator role with HCRN and will continue to lead the studies on hydrocephalus due to intraventricular hemorrhage in premature babies.


  1. I had the pleasure of meeting Dr. Wellon when he was wrapping-up his training at Duke Medical Center. I was a patient at the Durham Veterans Administration Hospital suffering from complex partial seizures from an earlier closed-head trauma while in the USAF.
    Dr. Wellon was the kindest and most compassionate person with a wonderful bedside manner for me and my attending family members. It doesn’t surprise me that he has reached this level of expertise and I commend for his hard work and dedication.
    He is a great person and will be a leader in his field for many years.
