Summary

Paul Matz, M.D., of Chesterfield, Missouri, worked as a financial analyst at Morgan Stanley for a year between graduating from Yale University with a Bachelor of Science in Chemistry and enrolling at the Columbia College of Physicians and Surgeons in New York City, where he won several academic awards en route to earning a Doctor of Medicine. After graduating from Columbia College, Dr. Paul Matz completed a six-year residency in Neurological Surgery at the University of California at San Francisco. While performing general neurosurgery duties, Dr. Matz participated in significant laboratory research, producing several awards, including the Edwin J.

Subsequently, Dr. Paul Matz completed a Spinal Neurosurgery Fellowship at the University of Alabama, Birmingham, adding to a focus on spinal disease and trauma. Dr. Paul Matz went on to become an Assistant Professor of Neurosurgery at the Stanford University Medical Center, where he taught clinic neurosurgery and led lab research efforts that the American Association of Neurological Surgeons recognized with the Bayer Research Fellowship Award in 1999. That led to an Associate Professor of Surgery position at the University of Alabama, where Dr. Matz focused on spinal disease and trauma while providing neurosurgery training to medical students and residents. Today, Dr. Paul Matz is a partner of the Brain and Spine Center at St. Luke's Hospital in Chesterfield, Missouri, a position he took in 2009.
