Philosophy of Care
I have worked in neurosurgery for the past four years. Prior to joining PAMF in 2009, I worked with a neurosurgeon who specialized in the treatment of movement disorders and chronic pain with implantable devices. I wanted to learn to assist in surgery and joining PAMF allowed me to pursue this interest. I believe it has given me a better appreciation and understanding of the postoperative experience and understanding of what patients might expect after surgery.
