Care Philosophy

Duke Childrens offers the full spectrum of services for children and pediatric neurosurgery is very strong here. I have an excellent group of people working with me and we really strive to take excellent care of these children and their families. We work hard to build up a trust because this is a very stressful and strained time in peoples lives when their children are ill. We work to build that trust and to maintain it on a daily basis. The whole team works together for the good of the child and the family. My favorite part of my job is seeing children who came in with a very serious health issue and after getting them through the surgery and recovery when they come back to clinic and we see that they have returned to their normal lives that theyre doing better that theyre enjoying all the things kids should be enjoying and really getting on with their lives. Its really rewarding to think I played a role in that child going on to have a healthy and productive life.
