Care Philosophy

As a pediatric neurosurgeon, I believe my role is to provide the best possible care to each child I see. My goal is to allow each child to reach their maximum potential. To achieve this goal, I treat each child as a unique individual and tailor care specfically to each patient. I make sure that each patient gets the required care, regardless of the need for a surgical procedure. Every patient that does require an operation is carefully prepared for the procedure to minimize anxiety.
