Faculty Spotlight: Joshua Fage

Posted on September 2023

Joshua Fage, MD has joined the Neuroradiology Section as an Assistant Professor (CHS). He most recently completed a musculoskeletal imaging and intervention fellowship in 2023 at the Mallinckrodt Institute of Radiology and previously practiced in Milwaukee, Wisconsin with Wisconsin Radiology Specialists. 

Where are you from? 

I grew up in Lafayette, Louisiana, which is the hub for Cajun culture.  

Why did you choose radiology? 

Going through medical school, I was the student that felt like “I can see myself doing that” after every rotation. Since radiology interacts with all specialties and plays a such large role in overall patient care, it seemed like the best fit. 

What are your career interests and goals?  

I would like to continue to grow as a radiologist and develop ways to best diagnose and treat those with spine pathologies. Additionally, I want to continue to train future radiologists and help position them for future success. 

What are your research interests? 

My predominant interest is the spine involving both imaging and interventions. During my fellowship, I gained considerable experience with spontaneous intracranial hypotension/CSF leaks and became fascinated with it being such a new clinical entity that we still know so little about.  

Why did you choose to work at UW? 

It became obvious very quickly that the people here are special. Everyone I’ve met has been incredibly kind and supportive. UW has also been very accommodating with helping tailor things to match my interests. 

What are your hobbies? 

Lately, I enjoy spending time with my wife exploring Wisconsin (we most recently discovered Paoli, where we had a great dinner and stumbled upon an outdoor concert). I enjoy traveling, cooking and trying new restaurants, spending time outdoors, following my favorite sports teams from Louisiana, and trying new hobbies that may or may not stick.
