• Concussion Management

Selected for a National Science Foundation scholarship between his junior and senior years of high school, Dr. Horner spent eight weeks at Indiana University studying bioanthropology. The experience convinced him to pursue his dream of becoming a neurosurgeon. The recipient of back-to-back Patients’ Choice awards, Dr. Horner received his graduate degree from Indiana University School of Medicine. He completed a straight surgical internship at Indiana University Hospitals. After a tour of duty with the U.S. Army serving in Vietnam, he returned to complete his residency in neurosurgery. He considers himself fortunate to have trained under and eventually practiced neurosurgery with Dr. Julius Goodman, an internationally renowned educator, personal mentor and giant in the neurosurgical field. Along with serving as a neurosurgical consultant to the Indianapolis Colts for many years, he was instrumental in organizing the vascular neurosurgical division of the then Indianapolis Neurosurgical Group, which was nationally recognized for its state-of-the-art expertise. Dr. Horner now limits his neurological practice to concussion management of athletes. Dr. Horner and his wife Jane have two sons, one daughter and four grandchildren. A devout member of his church, Dr. Horner also enjoys taking mission trips to volunteer his time and medical expertise in underdeveloped countries.
