Philosophy of Care

Growing up as the child of a Bulgarian diplomat during the Cold War, I was raised all over the world and was taught to value education and independence. I thought I might want to be an architect because I loved tinkering and working with my hands, but gravitated toward medicine because I couldn't draw and enjoyed science.

When I left Bulgaria for medical school in 1977, I could not return to my home country for a long time. I really love what I do -- and I have to, because neurosurgery was not an easy field to break into as a young woman in the 1980s. I value my relationships with mentors who have helped to show me that I am a neurosurgeon first, regardless of gender.

What motivates me personally as a neurosurgeon who operates primarily on children with brain tumors is seeing my patients thriving 10 or 15 years down the road. I value developing long-term relationships with my patients, and am involved in their follow up care for years.

I also pride myself on the open-minded outlook that I gained from living in Brazil, Sri Lanka and Italy as a child and making a critical decision at a young age to move abroad. I thrive on working with the many international patients who choose Boston Children's Hospital, as well as developing a twinning fellowship program in neuro-oncology and pediatric neurosurgery in Cairo, Egypt (Children’s Cancer Hospital Egypt 57357).


I am a pediatric neurosurgeon committed to the best possible outcomes for children with brain tumors at Boston Children's Hospital, Dana-Farber Cancer Institute and through my efforts to raise standards of care here and abroad.

I completed my residency at the University of Ottawa, in Canada, and was a fellow in pediatric neurosurgery at the Hospital for Sick Children in Toronto and in Neuroscience at the University of Pennsylvania. My joint training in both neurosurgery and basic neuroscience has helped me to treat patients at the highest level and conduct research that is forging new ground in our understanding of brain cancer biology.

I am a director of the combined program in pediatric neurosurgical oncology at Dana-Farber/Boston Children's Cancer and Blood Disorders Center. I co-direct Boston Children's Hospital's Brain Tumor program, a multidisciplinary program that is a model nationwide and that I helped to establish.

Since 1992, I have been in charge of the Neurosurgery Department's Quality Improvement program. I have developed an outcomes database for the Department of Neurosurgery and am working on standardizing outcome measures in our field. My work in this area aims to establish national outcomes measures for pediatric neurosurgical procedures for the first time. Boston Children's Hospital's industry-leading intraoperative MRI technology has contributed to this effort, allowing me to see whether we are accomplishing our goals as  surgery progresses, and helping to set new benchmarks and leading to the best possible outcomes.

I am committed to improving care overseas, through my relationship with CCHE (Children’s Cancer Hospital Egypt) 57357 in Cairo, Egypt  We have established a “twinning training program” between Boston Children’s/Dana Farber Cancer Institute and CCHE 57357 in Pediatric Oncology and are developing a similar training program in pediatric neurosurgery.

I have been honored to receive some of my field's most prestigious honors, including the Young Investigator Award from the American Association of Neurological Neurosurgeons in 1996 and the Women in Medicine prize in 2009 from Boston Children's Hospital.
