About Dr. Jean

Philosophy of care

I apply patient-centric care. Operations and approaches are tailored to your individual needs; there is no "one-size-fits-all."

Why I entered medicine

I chose the medical profession to relieve suffering, train the next generation of physicians and advance the art and science of medicine.

Community involvement

I am a founder of the Global Brainsurgery Initiative, an organization for international neurosurgical education. It brings leading-edge skills, technology and teaching to low- to middle-income countries to promote neurosurgical training.

Personal interests

I enjoy classical music, viticulture and international soccer.
