I strongly believe in the multidisciplinary management of neurosurgical disease processes. More discussion of issues related to patient care and communication between colleagues in different specialties leads to improved patient outcomes. No one ever wants to need a Pediatric Neurosurgeon which is why I strive to provide my patients with a high level of personal attention and service in order to guide them through their ordeal.
