I have been under the care of Dr. Menezes off & on since 1991. Unfortunately, there is nothing this amazing surgeon (or any other surgeon) can do to help me any longer. But, for years, this wonderful Neurosurgeon, with a warm smile & a heart of gold, did everything possible to improve my life! I will tell you that he is very confident in his work & any diagnosis he gives. I wouldn't have it any other way. For this reason, he expects parents & patients to follow his orders. ? Miss Amy

Dr. Menezes fixed my wife's basilar invagination with traction followed by surgery from the back of her neck, avoiding the much more gruesome trans-oral entry (through the back of the throat). She lost some range of motion in her neck, but that was what had to happen. We were warned that it would. She now has much less pain than she did before the surgery, and generally she's been doing well for the past 10 years since the operation. We trust Dr. Menezes implicitly.
