Dr.Xinru Xiao received his medical degree from Jiangxi Medical College of Nanchang University in 1993. He received his Ph.D. degree in Capital Medical University and completed his graduate neurosurgery residency training at Beijing Tiantan Hospital in 2003. He enrolled in a post doctor research in Kyushu University in Fukuoka, Japan. The research focus on gene therapy of glioblastomas. Thereafter, he worked in skull base unite and had about 300 case of skull base tumor each year in Beijing Tiantan Hospital for more than 12 years(2005-2017). And then he move to Xuanwu Hospital in Feb. 2018 (China INI).  

Dr. Xiao specializes in the treatment and research for skull base tumor. He treated more than 200 cases each year in China INI and about 200 cases in other local hospital in China . Most of these cases are skull base tumors including petroclival meningiomas, vestibular schwannoma, jugular foramen tumors, and tumors of sellar region.  He has served as the committee member for several organized neurosurgery associations.
