Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Shrivastava "Dr. Shrivastava specializes in the diagnosis and treatment of skull base tumors, meningiomas and pituitary tumors. He has sub-specialty fellowship training in complex skull base surgery that entails the use of minimally invasive technologies. These consist of endoscopic, 3D and stereotactic navigation in order to safely remove difficult and "hard-to-reach" brain tumors. Dr. Shrivastava believes that patient-centered care, good clinical outcome and personalized treatment come first."
