When Kamden Davis was diagnosed with sagittal craniosynostosis, his mother, Marissa, immediately got online to find out more about her son’s condition. During her research, she saw several references to David F. Jimenez, MD, FACS.
“His name kept coming up and it was very positive every time,” Marissa told us. “People online were speaking highly about Dr. Jimenez; that was very reassuring.” She emailed the pediatric neurosurgery clinic on a Sunday and received a reply within an hour, which Marissa described as “very impressive.”
After meeting Marissa and her son, Dr. Jimenez determined that Kamden would be a good candidate for surgery. Marissa initially dreaded Kamden’s surgery, but the actual experience was better than she had anticipated: “I thought giving my baby to the surgeon was going to be the hardest part, but I knew my son was in the best hands. I felt more at peace than I ever thought I'd feel.”
During her online research, Marissa was also encouraged by what she read about Darren J. Poidevin, the director of our cranial remolding program. She was thankful for his patience and attentiveness when the time came for Kamden to undergo cranial orthosis after his surgery.
“I think the orthosis is just as important as the surgery. Darren and Dr. Jimenez made a huge impact on our child’s life.
