He is widely published on the history of spine surgery, the outcomes of patients after cervical, thoracic, and lumbar surgery, disparities in accessibility to care, and outcomes of patients with spinal tumors. His work has led to over 100 presentations at national and international scientific meetings.

Neurosurgery is the medical specialty concerned with the prevention, diagnosis, surgical treatment, and rehabilitation of disorders which affect any portion of the nervous system including the brain, spinal cord, peripheral nerves, and extra-cranial cerebrovascular system. Neurosurgeons are doctors who diagnose and treat problems with the nervous system, often by performing surgery on the brain or spine. They treat strokes, tumors, cervical and lumbar disc disease, infections, and head or spinal cord injuries.

An educator who has helped train over 30 practicing neurosurgeons, Dr. Bydon is the recipient of the prestigious Richard Otenasek Faculty Teaching Award (2011), has received Maryland’s “Favorite Physician” yearly award since 2008, and was selected by his peers as “Baltimore Magazine’s Top Doctor” for 2014.

He was recently elected as the neurosurgical representative on the Johns Hopkins Faculty Senate. He is a “Medical Director” with Johns Hopkins Medicine International, overseeing the clinical, educational, teaching, and research activities of its Brazilian affiliate, Hospital Moinhos de Vento.
