The Surgeon Behind the Mask
Andrew Reisner completed his neurosurgery residency at Emory in 1993. “My mentors included George Tindall and Daniel Barrow, current chief of the Department of Neurosurgery at Emory.”
Since returning to Emory two decades ago, Reisner has been instrumental in the development of the Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) and Concussion programs at Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta. Grateful families have established the Andrew Reisner TBI fund, which supports clinical programs and research related to traumatic brain injury and concussion in children.
“I chose pediatric neurosurgery because I like working with children,” Reisner says. “They are brave, authentic, and funny.”
