Philosophy of Care

When your child receives a neurosurgical diagnosis, it's a big deal. Even if it turns out to be nothing serious, the wait to see a neurosurgeon can be very stressful. And if it turns out to be serious, it can be a life-changing event. Most pediatric neurosurgeons can manage the surgical care of your child without difficulty. You should try to find one that works well with your family. But management of your child's medical care is only half the job. It is important that you clearly understand the issues and then make a high-quality decision - one that leaves you with peace of mind. A big part of my job is to help you understand not only what is going on but what it means - what choices you have and the trade-offs - then help you make a good decision about what to do next. I am gratified by helping families find peace with their decisions. Families leave my office with a clear and understandable printout of what we discussed during our office visit. We create this together, and I make sure I address all questions clearly and families leaving feeling confident about managing their child's diagnosis.
