My identical twin boys were diagnosed with metopic craniosynostosis shortly after birth, which required surgery for their brains to grow properly. After some going back and forth with referrals, we were told Dr. Blum would review their case as he is pretty much constantly overbooked, as he is the only pediatric neurosurgeon in Las Vegas. He has a calm professional energy that is perfrect for the anxiety of having children requiring neurosurgery. They finally had their surgery this month at 11 months of age, and the outcome has been incredible. They are simply different boys now, so much happier and healthier. Dr. Blum and Dr. Menezes are an incredible duo, and the Las Vegas valley is lucky to have them. Thank you so much for saving my sons Dr. Blum. We will be forever grateful for you and Dr. Menezes. P.S. You will wait a while in the front office. This guy is the only pediatric neurosurgeon for the entire Las Vegas valley. Be patient and thankful you are there.

ON Feb. 5 Dr. Blum inserted a shunk in my wifes brain..Until that morning I was carrying her around, changing her diaper, reminding her I was her husband of 35 years..Feb 8,this same women was walking around, restarting to have control of her bladder and bowel, and remembering who I was...Her procedure was for normal hydrocehalus. Her problem was nothing "normal"..Thank you Doctor..

My one year old daughter had a head trauma and needed emergency surgery. Dr Blum was her surgeon and did an excellent job with my daughters surgery. Not only did he do a great job but he is very kind and informative and really helped us get through this traumatic experience. I would definitely refer him to my family and friends and anyone who needs his services. Thank you so much Dr. Blum for everything and for taking care of my baby.

My son was in a bad car accident with a TBI and Dr. Blum was there for him the whole way. He needed an emergency craniotomy and the doctor stayed late on a Saturday night to perform it. He has excellent skills and a great bedside manner. He truly cares about his patients. I would highly recommend him to anyone.

I have seen Dr. Blum twice and I can honestly say that in a town full of unfortunately dishonest medical professionals, Dr. Blum is a blessing! He took the time to take a full history, answer all my questions, he is very pleasant to talk to, totally does not have that arrogant god complex a lot of surgeons have, and best of all he was completely honest with me that I did NOT need surgery and told me exactly what treatment plan to follow. I fully trust him and highly recommend him.
