      Dr. Mark Bryniarski was born and raised in Cracow, Poland. After completing his medical school in Poland, at the renowned Jagiellonian University, he came to the United States. He was trained as a neurologist in Albuquerque, NM, and as a neurosurgeon in Kansas City, KS. After his neurosurgical training, he completed a fellowship in skull base and cerebrovascular surgery at the Indianapolis Neurosurgical Group (now Goodman Campbell Brain and Spine), in Indianapolis, IN, under Dr. Troy Payner. Between 2006 and 2009 he practiced neurosurgery in Denver metropolitan area where he successfully developed his practice with special emphasis on skull base approaches, brain and spinal cord tumors, transsphenoidal approaches, trigeminal neuralgia, and other facial pain syndromes, and vagal nerve stimulation. He worked closely with Dr. John Oro, former Chairman of Neurosurgery at the University of Missouri in Columbia, MO, acquiring skills in Chiari malformations. His armamentarium of skills includes: brain tumor surgery (including skull base approaches), transsphenoidal pituitary surgery, brain endoscopy, head and spinal trauma, microvascular decompression, awake craniotomies with brain mapping, stereotactic brain surgery, laser brain surgery, and Gamma Knife stereotactic radiosurgery. He also has significant experience in spine surgery, including anterior and posterior spinal instrumentation, robotic spine surgery, and artificial discs.

 

      In the next step of his career in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, Dr. Bryniarski developed a very strong brain tumor program with cooperation with the Oncology Group at the Cyber Knife Center, and ENT Group for treatment of pituitary tumors. In the NeuroPain Center he treated numerous ailments related to pain, including neuro-vascular conflicts in the posterior fossa causing trigeminal neuralgia, glossopharyngeal neuralgia, hemifacial spasm, and others. 

 

      In March of 2016, Dr. Bryniarski joined Lovelace Medical Group in Albuquerque, NM. Over the years, he had built a highly sophisticated neurosurgical center focusing on brain tumors and neuro-vascular conflicts in the posterior fossa. In October of 2021, Dr. Bryniarski joined Neuroscience Center in Albuquerque, NM. He is building a premier neuroscience center with other neurosurgeons, neurologists, oncologists, with cooperation with  Gamma Knife Center of New Mexico,  with highly sophisticated equipment in the operating theater. 

      In 2019 Dr. Bryniarski was appointed to the faculty at the rank of Clinical Assistant Professor at Burrell College of Medicine located in Las Cruces, New Mexico.
