Medical Advisory Board

One of the Hemispherectomy Foundation's objectives is to provide you with medical information from the best available sources. For this reason, we established a Medical Advisory Board. The Board is composed of highly experienced surgeons and specialists, many who are active in Hemispherectomy research and are world-renowned. These doctors have generously donated their time and resources to provide up-to-date information on hemispherectomy brain surgery.
