  • Ben Shofty, MD/PhD is an Israeli-board certified functional neurosurgeon and a former Israeli national rugby player. He graduated from the Tel-Aviv University Faculty of Medicine, and received a PhD in systems neuroscience from the Israeli Institute of Technology. He completed his neurosurgical training at the Tel-Aviv Medical Center, followed by two years of combined research/clinical fellowship at Baylor College of Medicine. His practice will focus on neuromodulation for psychiatric disorders, surgical treatments for cancer pain, movement disorders and epilepsy. In his lab, he is investigating high-order cognition and network dependent functions such as creativity and mind wondering, as well as novel interventions for OCD, depression and PTSD. In addition, he is interested in advanced imaging and visual biopsies.

    Dr. Ben Shofty has a marvelous presence about him. And, he does not have that attitude of so many in the medical field that leaves us clients wondering: what¿s really ahead. Dr. Shofty was gracious, kind, and very ¿open¿ about everything. It¿s honestly a pleasure to have met with Dr. Ben. I¿m truly looking forward, now, to this coming experience. Most grateful, I and my dear wife, Susan, are!!! Thank You, Dr. Shofty.

    He was not only over 30 minutes late for a 5 minute appointment, but when I asked a question he treated me like an idiot. All of the information he gave was already relayed to me in a previous MyChart message by the nurse. I¿m disgusted that I¿m forced to pay an entire copay for such poor service and apathy. I have been a patient at UofU for over a decade and I have never been treated this poorly.
