Dr. Loudon was the on call trauma surgeon the night of my son's TBI. I will be forever grateful. He's a wonderfully compassionate, brilliant, experienced doctor. I trust him completely. His office staff are helpful and kind, especially Cat. It's a scary,stressful time and my entire family felt very safe and confident in his care. It was out great fortune and blessing to have him as our surgeon. I have great respect and admiration for Dr. Loudon and highly recommended him.

I am only writing this review with a pure interest in helping other parents. If you have a smail child (ours is 9 month old) and seeing this Dr. for just a concern on the shape of the head and your baby's Pedriatrician doesn't see a cocern with your baby's cranial development, PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE get a second opinion from another Dr. Our 9th Month old was wrongly misdiagnosed. THANK GOD we seeked a second a ponion.
As a senior ped. neurosurgeon and a father, it greatly disturbs me that these parents were not satisfied with my diagnosis. I teach both plastic surgery and neurosurgery residents as well as pediatricians the principals of diagnosis and treatment for deformational and acquired craniofacial problems. It is hard to imagine that I missed this diagnosis. I always recommend and caution parents to get second opinions from physicians, especially before surgery or the purchase of a 3000 dollar helmet.
