Overview of Dr. Souweidane

Mark M. Souweidane, MD, has dedicated his career to the surgical treatment of children with brain and spinal disorders. His talents as a surgeon are paralleled by a caring attitude and time commitment to patients and their families. That the Weill Cornell Medical College is a recognized leader in Pediatric Neurosurgery is a direct result of his recruitment in 1995 and his ongoing devotion to contemporary surgical techniques and investigative endeavors.

Dr. Souweidane's specialized surgical skills have gained him international reputation for specific procedures, including removal of intraventricular brain tumors, management of pineal region tumors, treatment of congenital cysts, and surgery for Chiari malformation.
