Dr. Adelson has been recognized as one of the foremost experts on pediatric head injury , lecturing around the United States and the world. Now he joined Phoenix Children's to expand a program that surpasses the typical model of pediatric care. For some, it's playing a musical instrument. For others, it's painting. But for P. David Adelson, MD, FACS, FAAP, the director of the Hospital's Barrow Neurological Institute and chief of neurosurgery, his passion is a bit atypical. "My hobby is neuroscience," he says. "The heart's a pump, the kidney's a filter – those are all simple functions which are there to support who we are and what we do." But the brain controls it all, he says. "I just looked at the brain and neurosciences as the next frontier; studying something of which I would never get bored." Dr. Adelson has been recognized as one of the foremost experts on pediatric head injury clinical management, lecturing around the United States and the world. He has been published in numerous medical and scientific journals defining "state-of-the art" in the care of children with traumatic brain injuries. The path to Phoenix Children's Hospital Dr. Adelson came to Phoenix in January from Pittsburgh, where he served as the A. Leland Albright Endowed Professor of Neurosurgery/Pediatric Neurosurgery at Children's Hospital of Pittsburgh and Vice Chairman, (Research) at the University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine , one of the most prominent neurosurgical departments in the country.
