Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Ewend "My first goal is to build a strong relationship with my patient and his or her family. In addition to a thoughtful review of their case, patients can expect an understandable explanation of their condition, discussion of all the treatment options, and my opinion as to which option(s) might be best. At UNC, we work in teams to bring you the best care. If needed, I will help you to assemble this team. I pride myself on making the issues of neurosurgery easy to understand for my patients. After all, it isn't really rocket science. I look forward to meeting you."

Amazing care throughout our ordeal with finding out my husband had an acoustic neuroma. The surgery took twice as long as we expected, but everything before, during and after went great. I am very happy with how quickly we were able to schedule the surgery and my husband's level of care while in...more

Dr. Ewend operated on me twice in 1999. When I first met Dr. Ewend, like anyone else, I was scared to even think about brain surgery. His mannerism and his confidence that he could take care of my tumor/cyst calmed me greatly. I would recommend Dr. Ewend to anyone.
