Nathan Zwagerman, MD

Assistant Professor of Neurosurgery

From Dr. Zwagerman

“I believe that treating patients is more than simply treating the problem they present with. The best way to treat each patient is to discover what is important in their lives, educate about the presenting problem, and formulate a treatment strategy that takes all of these things together to arrive at a treatment plan.”
