He subsequently completed three fellowships. The first in neuroendovascular surgery at the University of Miami, the second in open cerebrovascular and skull base surgery at the University of Miami, and finally in minimally invasive/endoscopic surgery for brain and spine tumors at the Center for Minimally invasive Neurosurgery in Sydney, Australia.

Dr. Elhammady is currently the director of minimally invasive cranial neurosurgery and the co-director of neuroendovascular surgery as well as skull base and cerebrovascular surgery at the University of Miami. He specializes in the treatment of all aspects of neurovascular disease and complex brain tumors.
