  • Gerald Arthur Grant
  • “My approach is to treat each child like my very own.”

I believe that as healers and physicians, we should treat every child as if they were part of our own family. We provide highly specialized, state-of-the-art pediatric neurosurgical care, using some of the world's most technically advanced procedures and imaging modalities. However, at Lucile Packard Children's Hospital Stanford, we also recognize the importance of treating the child or young adult in a supportive and compassionate environment.

I also believe in the importance of a team of specialists to care for your child across many disciplines to provide the highest level of care possible. I find children to be incredibly mature in their ability to face new challenges, and I try to involve them as much as possible in the day-to-day decision-making. I will become their champion to do whatever I can to allow them to focus on being a kid again.

I am very proud to be on the team at Stanford and Lucile Packard Children's Hospital.
