Biographical Information

Dr. Susan Durham is a pediatric neurosurgeon and Division Chief of Neurosurgery at the University of Vermont Medical Center. She is also an associate professor at the Larner College of Medicine at UVM. Dr. Durham treats conditions such as spina bifida, pediatric brain tumors, hydrocephalus, tethered spinal cord, and Chiari 1 malformation.  Her research interests include the development of evidence-based guidelines in pediatric neurological surgery, and she is currently participating in a multi-center clinical trial on Chiari 1 malformation with syringomyelia.  

Dr. Durham understands that having your child see a pediatric neurosurgeon is a very stressful time, not only for the child, but also for the parents and caregivers. Fortunately, many of children that are referred to her do not need to undergo surgery and being able to put a family's worries to rest is equally as rewarding to her as being able to help a child surgically.   

When a child does require surgery, she sees it as the beginning of a very special relationship with both the child and the family that extends over many years. She enjoys the opportunity to watch children grow and prosper in the years following surgery that makes one appreciate just how strong and resilient children really are.
