When my younger son complained of a lump on his head – I thought he had just bumped it on the ceiling of the basement stairwell – he is growing so fast. I was shocked when a CT scan showed a lesion in a bone in his skull, and he needed to have neurosurgery. However, because of Dr. Amy Lee’s surgical expertise, my boy was back to normal and back to school in a matter of days. Neurosurgery can never be considered “routine”, yet because of her compassionate and skilled care, the only thing noticeably different about my son is his haircut. It is abundantly clear that she is completely devoted to her work, and for that, I am forever grateful.

Dr. Amy Lee is an excellent surgeon as well as a very approachable person with a great sense of humor. She interacts really well with us, the parents, as well as our baby girl. It's great that our daughter can have such a nice, female neurosurgeon as a role model so early in her life.

Dr. Lee was part of my infant son's surgical team for CVR to treat his craniosynostosis. She was incredibly calm and kind and explained her role to us thoroughly. We felt so lucky to have such a great team. He recovered and healed remarkably well and all the doctors are pleased with his progress so far after such an intricate procedure. I'm glad Dr. Lee will be with us for the next surgery as well. You are in good hands if she is on your team. Thank you Dr. Lee!
