Dr. Philipp Aldana and Hope Nance

Savannah-area resident Tara Nance is filled with gratitude after her daughter, Hope, 14, recovered from brain tumor surgery to remove a dangerous tumor. Tara Nance is grateful for the care Hope received from pediatric neurosurgeon Philipp Aldana, MD, and Wolfson Children’s Hospital in Jacksonville, Florida.

“Dr. Aldana is so kind and treated us like family. He went above and beyond to comfort Hope and we trusted his professionalism,” said Nance. “Everyone we met at Wolfson Children’s was phenomenal.”

Hope Nance has been under Dr. Aldana’s care for nearly four years. It all began when Hope started experiencing migraines that wouldn’t go away, so her mother took her to Nemours Children’s Specialty Care, Jacksonville. The doctor at Nemours referred the Nance family to pediatric neurosurgeon Dr. Aldana, co-medical director of the Stys Neuroscience Institute at Wolfson Children’s and chief of the Division of Pediatric Neurosurgery at the UF College of Medicine – Jacksonville. A high-resolution MRI and CT scan at Wolfson Children’s confirmed that Hope had a small mass about the size of a pea in her cerebellum. [Read more →]
