in Orlando, FL |
A wonderful Surgeon who helped me to live a normal life with Hydrocephelus. I had my last shunt replacement at the age of 16 and I am 30 years now. I graduated with my Bachelor Degree in Administration at the age of 23. I highly recommend Dr Cardoso to anyone who needs a neurosurgeon to trust. ...more
