Support Neurological Surgery

Neurological Surgery Grateful Patient Giving

OHSU neurological surgery staff and physicians care about the people in our community and show it by giving you the best medical attention possible. If you or a loved one have experienced exemplary care and wish to show your appreciation, please consider making a gift to the department. Your OHSU neurological surgery physician or the neurological surgery administrator would be happy to speak with you to determine what you have in mind, discuss areas of greatest need and benefit, and put you in touch with an OHSU or Doernbecher Foundation staff member. The gift you make today will benefit our community for years to come.
