As a pediatric neurosurgeon, my job is often to treat terrible diseases in wonderful patients.  Hearing your child may need see a brain or spine surgeon can feel heartbreaking. I want to help kids and their families understand the child’s health, and give them the best experience possible to try and get better faster.
