Overview

  • Dr. Barton L. Guthrie received his B.S. in psychology, followed by an M.D. degree from the University of Alabama at Birmingham in 1980. Dr. Guthrie then pursued post-doctoral studies in the Department of Physiology and Biophysics, at UAB. Subsequently, he trained in neurosurgery at the Mayo Clinic, followed by a fellowship at Stanford University. Between 1988-1992, Dr. Guthrie was an assistant professor at the George Washington University, before finally arriving to the UAB Division of Neurosurgery in 1993. He specializes in the treatment of movement disorders, surgery and radiosurgery of brain tumors, in addition to general neurosurgery practice.

    A board-certified diplomat of the American Association of Neurological Surgery, Dr. Guthrie has served on several editorial boards, including the Journal of Computer-aided Surgery, and the Journal of Radiosurgery. Additionally, he has served in leadership roles within the Neurosurgical Society of Alabama, and the Southern Neurosurgical Society.

    Throughout the years, Dr. Guthrie has led a career of innovation. He holds several patents for technology related to image-guided surgery, and was co-founder of Emageon, a now publicly traded company on NASDAQ. His original work with Emageon, pioneered the era of medical image viewing on the standard desktop computer.
