Simone Langness, M.D. is currently a clinical fellow in trauma & critical care at the University of California, San Francisco. Dr. Langness obtained her M.D. from Emory University and thereafter completed residency in general surgery at the University of California, San Diego.

Dr. Langness studied intestinal inflammation after ischemia/reperfusion injury and the effects of vagal nerve stimulation at the University of California, San Diego. Additionally, Simone performed clinical research in pediatric head trauma. Her work received awards from the American College of Surgeons Committee on Trauma, Surgical Infection Society and American Association of Pediatric Surgeons.
