Pediatric Neurosurgeons


Many patients are directed to Yale by their neurosurgeons because their problem is unusual or extremely complicated. Patients may also refer themselves. Patients are seen quickly, usually within two weeks of calling the department. All patients referred to Yale benefit from the multi-disciplinary team approach that is an essential feature of our practice. Our surgeons maintain a close working relationship with many area neurosurgeons and welcome referrals. Care is taken to ensure the referring physician is kept current on diagnostic findings and treatment recommendations.
