"It is a privilege and a mission to care for the children of the Pacific Northwest and beyond. Our entire team does our very best to create a medical ‘home’ for children suffering from a nervous system disease."
Dr. Selden cares for premies, infants, children and adolescents with diseases of the brain and spinal cord that require surgical intervention. He has advanced training in pediatric neurosurgery and extensive experience in caring for children with brain tumors, epilepsy, hydrocephalus, spina bifida, Chiari malformation, synostosis (birth defects of the skull), brain and spinal trauma, cerebral palsy with spasticity, and vascular malformations.
Dr. Selden grew up in Portland, although he was educated and trained around the world, as far as Cambridge University in England and Harvard Medical School, before returning home to practice at Doernbecher and raise his family.
As a leader in neurosurgery, Dr. Selden is involved in the education of neurosurgeons here in Oregon and around North America. He has published dozens of articles in medical journals devoted to advanced techniques and new methods of caring for children with disorders of the nervous system.
