Pediatric Neurosurgeon Joins Boys Town Hospital
Tuesday, November 12, 2019
Linden Fornoff, M.D.
Boys Town National Research Hospital and Medical Clinics
On August 15, Boys Town National Research Hospital welcomed
Linden Fornoff, M.D., to the Pediatric Neuroscience department at Boys Town National Research Hospital.
A Fremont, NE native, Dr. Fornoff received her medical degree from the University of Nebraska Medical Center and completed her neurosurgery residency there as well. In addition, she completed a pediatric neurosurgery fellowship at Stanford University, Stanford, California. Choosing the surgical route, rather than clinical, allowed for a deeper connection to pediatric patients.
“Pediatric neurosurgery called to me because not only can you help the patients via the operating room, but you develop lifelong relationships with the patients and their families akin to their primary care physicians,” Dr. Fornoff said. “I love forming these relationships with patients and their families. Seeing them grow and develop makes my heart swell.”
Dr. Fornoff will be seeing patients at Boys Town National Research Hospital on Boys Town campus at 14080 Boys Town Hospital Rd.
