Dr. Andrew Boucher Joins Semmes Murphey Clinic

The native Memphian is a neurosurgeon with a specialized interest in treating brain tumors.

Semmes Murphey Clinic has expanded the team with the addition of Dr. Andrew Boucher, who joined July 15. Dr. Boucher (pronounced Boo-shay), is a neurosurgeon with a special interest in neurosurgical oncology and a heart for all things Memphis.

He also treats patients with back and/or neck pain due to common spinal disorders such as degenerative arthritis, cervical or lumbar stenosis, and herniated discs.

Dr. Boucher graduated from the University of Tennessee Health Science Center and completed his residency at Emory University in Atlanta. After developing an interest in brain tumors and skull base surgery, he completed a fellowship in neurosurgical oncology at Emory. This special training means he also treats adults with tumors of the central nervous system, such as in the brain or pituitary gland.

“I find it rewarding to take care of patients in Memphis, because it’s always been home for me. I love the city and love taking care of the people here,” Dr. Boucher says.

He’s proud to be a native Memphian and a graduate of Houston High School and Rhodes College, where he played both football and baseball.

He’s a big fan of Corky’s Ribs & BBQ and Bosco’s Squared in Midtown. “It’s fun to go back to the zoo as an adult; it was always a favorite as a kid. Now I get to see my kids enjoying it,” he says.

His hobbies include running and golf, but he quickly adds that most of his free time is spent with his wife, Andrea, and chasing his young children, ages four and one.
