This site was designed and developed by a Board Certified Neurosurgeon (cv) with more than 30 years of private practice experience. The site represents education, experience and input from patients, families, fellow physicians, nursing staff and other health care providers. There are multiple options for dealing with neurosurgical challenges. This site presents information to help patients, families and medical workers to better understand neurosurgical problems and, therefore, be better able to choose the best option for their situation. Viewers are encouraged to visit other sites and medical professionals to answer their specific questions. The site does not provide medical advice nor recommendations; it simply tries to provide understanding in order to help all involved make better decisions when dealing with neurosurgical patients.
