John Oró MD, AANS Fellow, joined faculty at the University of Missouri (MU) Health
Sciences Center in Columbia in 1984 following completion of his neurosurgical
residency at MU. During his early career, Dr. Oró focused on pediatric, skull base, and
cerebrovascular surgery. In 1991, at the age of 40, Dr. Oró became Chief of the
Division of Neurosurgery, likely the youngest neurosurgeon to head a US
neurosurgical program at that time. He became a Professor of Neurosurgery in 1999.
Dr. Oró recruited neurosurgical faculty and developed multiple subspecialty
neurosurgical programs. He co-founded the Neurosurgery Research Laboratory and
performed early research in motor evoked monitoring and transcranial magnetic
stimulation. In 1998, Dr. Oró and Diane Mueller, ND, RN FNP-BC, established a
specialty clinic for persons with the Chiari I malformation and Syringomyelia.
In 2005, Dr. Oró moved to Aurora, Colorado, where he became the Director of
Neurosurgery at the Medical Center of Aurora (TMCA). There he established the
Neurosurgery Center of Colorado and the Chiari Care Center. In 2017, Dr. Oró
narrowed his focus and became director of the new Colorado Chiari Institute.
Dr. Oró has lectured nationally and internationally and has published widely. He
serves on the Advisory Boards of two national Chiari organizations. Dr. Oró is
currently mentoring two TMCA neurosurgeons who are continuing the work of the
Colorado Chiari Institute. Dr. Oró is active in improving the care of those affected by
the Chiari I malformation.
