Andrey Belayev, M.D.
Neurosurgeon in Raleigh
Meet the Doctor
Dr. Andrey Belayev joined the Raleigh Neurosurgical Clinic in 2016. In addition to his clinical practice as a general neurosurgeon, he specializes in the treatment of neurovascular disorders including aneurysms, vascular malformations of the brain and spine, carotid artery stenosis, and the acute treatment of stroke.
“Bringing me onboard gives us an additional way to treat these disorders through endovascular techniques,” he says.
Dr. Belayev developed a passion for neurosurgery early in his career, conducting research on stroke and head trauma during both college and medical school.
“The most rewarding part about my job is seeing my patients recover. Specifically, patients with stroke, because the effect is almost immediate. It’s one of the most rewarding experiences that I think any surgeon can have.”
His fluency in Russian and medical Spanish also allows him to attend to the unique language needs of his patients. Dr. Belayev earned his medical degree at the University of Miami Miller School of Medicine. He then completed his residency in neurosurgery at University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio, where he served as Chief Resident. He completed his fellowship training in both open cerebrovascular surgery and endovascular neurosurgery and at the prestigious Semmes-Murphey Clinic in Memphis. He also completed a fellowship and advanced clinical training in microvascular and endovascular neurosurgery with the World Federation of Neurological Societies in Nagoya, Japan. Dr. Belayev is the author of 12 peer-reviewed manuscripts, and has been invited to present his research findings at respected clinical meetings around the world. His interests outside of medicine include spending time with his family, traveling, hiking, tennis, and exploring all that North Carolina has to offer. He is married and together with his wife have made Raleigh their home.
