Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Cornacchia III "I am dedicated to improving the lives of others through compassionate care as a neurosurgeon and through research into new medical technologies and surgical techniques. My goal is to apply my surgical training when surgery can meaningfully solve a problem for a patient, and to minimize the invasiveness of the intervention whenever as possible. Ultimately, I believe my purpose as a neurosurgeon is to help those facing neurosurgical problems achieve the maximum quality of life with the maximum possible lifespan -- and to think "out of the box" whenever possible to find better ways to achieve that goal. "
