R. Michael Scott, MD, receives Franc D. Ingraham Distinguished Service Award
Children's internationally acclaimed neurosurgeon and former neurosurgeon-in-chief R. Michael Scott, MD, has been selected by the American Association of Neurological Surgeons/Congress of Neurological Surgeons (AANS/CNS) Section of Pediatric Neurological Surgery to receive its prestigious Franc D. Ingraham Distinguished Service Award.
“I am humbled to receive the Franc D. Ingraham Distinguished Service Award from my colleagues,” said Dr. Scott. “Every day I am inspired by the patients I treat. These children face life threatening illnesses, but they and their parents are amazingly resilient, and playing a part in their care is truly inspirational.”
New Children's neurosurgeon-in-chief Alan Cohen, MD, FACS, FAAP, chair of the AANS/CNS Section on Pediatric Neurological Surgery, presented Dr. Scott with the award at the organization’s annual meeting in Austin, Texas.
