Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Duckworth "My passion is the treatment of complex complex cranial (and certain spine) disorders. Knowledge and experience from extensive fellowship training, in addition to all of the latest technology and medical science is used in the treatment of these difficult conditions. I consider it a privilege to treat patients, for which I have the utmost respect. My ultimate guiding philosophy comes from the Hippocratic Oath: "primum non nocere," which means do no harm. Only when surgery is truly necessary do I recommend it, and when possible, minimally invasive techniques are used. Hair sparing surgery, small incisions, and miniature craniotomies are used, as are endovascular and radiosurgical treatments."

What People Say About Dr. Edward Duckworth, MD
He was extremely late to each appointment. Did not listen, did not care what I had to say. Terrible bed side manner. No compassion whatsoever. I would travel to Salt Lake to not go to his office again.
