    Dr. Kelly and Dr. Griffiths helped to develop endoscopic pituitary surgery and have assembled one of the best teams available for this type of surgery. Dr. Kelly was able to remove 100 percent of the tumor. My post op recovery was quick and nearly painless. Six weeks after the operation my pituitary function is nearly fully restored.

    Dr. Daniel Kelly and his excellent team took care of my father for over a decade. My father Mr.W was first diagnosed with a Grade II atypical meningioma when I was in middle school. He required multiple surgeries to remove the recurrent tumor over the course of eleven years. Dr. Kelly has been with my family every step of the way. Dr. Kelly is not only a brilliant and talented surgeon who gave my father’s life back (not once, but three times) but also a truly understanding and patient doctor.

    Dr. Kelly, Dr. Barkhoudarian, Dr. Sivakumar, Dr. Griffiths and their entire team are beyond amazing. They are calm, kind, extremely compassionate and highly skilled in what they do. I had been to some of the top doctors on the east and west coast prior to finding Dr. Kelly. No one compared to him and his associates. I am forever grateful to have found them and forever thankful for their amazing work.

    Dr. Kelly is very competent, professional and nice. His team handled my evaluation quickly and in a week did surgery to remove a macro adenoma. I owe him my vision and my life.

    Dr Kelly and his associate Dr Walavan Sivakumar and the entire team were unbelievable. Their knowledge, compassion and ability to be such wonderful people far surpasses anything we have ever seen. This was my husbands 3rd brain surgery and we are happy to report that all is well. His first 2 were done other places. We both have worked in another hospital for 30 years and we were beyond impressed and well cared for.
