Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Cook "Patient comfort is as important as overall outcome. By using minimally invasive techniques in all aspects of neurosurgery, hospital stay and recovery time are shortened, while patient discomfort is minimized. Surgery should always be the last option after all non-surgical options have failed. If surgery is the only option left, then the least invasive option that alleviates the symptoms should always be chosen."

Patient Comments (13)

My son had a malignant brain tumor and Dr. Cook quite literally saved his life. He explained everything in a direct and confident manner. He went out of his way to ease my worries; even replying to my calls and email when he was out of the country. I highly recommend him. Thank you, Dr. Cook.

Dr Cook did the most exceptional job in removing the tumor from my moms brain. She was left with no deficits and we are super happy with the surgery. He is not the most personal doctor but if you want a fabulous surgeon, dr cook is your guy.
