Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Young "1. Neurosurgery should be a holistic practice, which more often than not involves non-surgical approaches. 2. Even when surgery is necessary, smaller operations are often more effective than large, invasive ones. 3. A neurosurgeon's most useful diagnostic skill is listening to patients. One of his/her major tasks is educating and counseling patients so they can participate in their own care. 4. Patient should generally obtain second opinions before agreeing to major surgery."
