Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Mutchnick "Surgery can be a difficult decision to make. As a neurosurgeon, the diseases I treat can be difficult to understand and the outcomes of neurosurgical treatment are not guaranteed.

My goal as your neurosurgeon is not only to do safe, effective surgery - it is also to help you make decisions about your child's care that make sense to you and your family. I want to help you make decisions you can be at peace with, regardless of the outcome."
