Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Rose "I have been in practice for over 4 years. I served in Vietnam during my residency as a flight surgeon. Back then it was not neurosurgery alone, we had to know all aspects of surgical medicine. I have a passion for teaching and passing on the knowledge I have acquired through all of these years. I serve patients for anything from traumas to elective, spinal decompressions and fusions but I really enjoy cerebrovascular surgery for AVMs, aneurysms and moyamoya disease."
