Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Babbitz "I am excited to provide my patients with the most cutting-edge surgical advancements in brain and spine surgery. However, I believe that compassion is just as important as technology. I work with my patients and their family members to educate them about their condition and treatment options so that we can make decisions as a team. I often advise non-operative therapies when I feel they are in my patients' best interests. When I give advice to my patients I look at them as family members and my guidance is the same I would give to my family, friends, or myself if I were in their shoes. "
