2014 Connecticut Top Doctor Award

Congratulations to Dr. Baston, Dr. Shahid and Dr. Sanderson who were named Top Docs by Connecticut Magazine for the third consecutive year in a row. We are proud that no matter which physician you see at our office, all of our patients will be seen by a Top Doctor! 

DR. S. JAVED SHAHID graduated at the top of his class from Dow Medical College in Karachi, Pakistan. He interned at Kingsbrook Jewish Medical Center in Brooklyn. He did residencies in neurosurgery at Downstate Medical Center and neurology at Columbia Presbyterian. He performed the first transphenoidal surgery at Danbury Hospital. He performs microsurgery, laser surgery, stereotactic intracranial surgery and large volumes of all types of spinal surgeries. “Our practice strives for patient satisfaction from their initial consultation, surgical, nonsurgical care and beyond.”

DR. RAMON BATSON graduated from Harvard with honors. He earned his degree from Upstate Medical Center in Syracuse and completed his neurosurgery residency at Tufts. He treats patients with traumatic and non-traumatic diseases of the brain and spine but has a special interest in patients with pituitary tumors, CSF flow disorders (hydrocephalus, Chiari malformation) and brain tumors. “Patients are very grateful because there is a tremendous improvement in their quality of life.”

DR. SCOTT SANDERSON graduated cum laude from SUNY Upstate Medical University. He did his internship and residency in neurological surgery at NYU Medical Center and fellowship in complex spinal surgery and instrumentation. At NYU, Bellevue Hospital and Veterans Affairs Hospital in Manhattan, he performed surgery on complex brain tumors, intracerebral vascular malformations, cerebral aneurysms and extensive brain and spinal cord traumatic injuries. He tells people what’s going on in a language they can understand and offers various options. “In neurosurgery, you can’t always make everyone 100 percent better. If you explain the truth and the expected outcomes, they’re extremely happy."
