About Dr. D'Ambrosio

Driven by Bringing Patients A Higher Quality of Life

I’m here to help. That’s it. Whatever I can do to help patients and their loved ones make the best decisions for their health and
quality of life, I will do. I’ve spent the last 20+ years of my professional life learning everything about trigeminal neuralgia, hemifacial spasm, and brain tumors so I can help people get back to regular, everyday life as soon as possible.

As a brain surgeon specializing in both complex brain surgery and Gamma Knife, I can honestly say that I offer only what is in the best interest of my patients.  At The Valley Hospital and the Valley Gamma Knife Center, my patients have access to state-of-the-art brain surgery as well as non-invasive radiosurgery.  Whatever the best plan is, I offer that to my patients. Nothing more, nothing less. It’s inspiring and empowering to know that, at Valley, I can provide everything a person needs, close to home with the care, expertise and respect people deserve.
