Mission details

Team Neuro was formed by Dr. Sarah Jernigan in 2023.

"We want to improve neurosurgery access for children and adults with a variety of conditions, including hydrocephalus, encephaloceles, traumatic brain and spine injuries and degenerative spine disease," Dr. Jernigan said. "We are working with the local hospital and surgeons to identify patients and plan for this and future trips. We hope to build a long-lasting relationship with the hospital and community."
