Date:11/30/2011

Children's Hospital Boston today announced that world renowned neurosurgeon R. Michael Scott, MD, will be awarded the prestigious Franc D. Ingraham Distinguished Service Award. Given by the American Association of Neurological Surgeons/CNS Section of Pediatric Neurological Surgery, the award is the highest honor given by the organization and recognizes individuals whose achievements have advanced the field of pediatric neurosurgery. Alan Cohen, MD, FACS, FAAP, Chair, AANS/CNS Section on Pediatric Neurological Surgery and Chief of Neurosurgery at Children's, will present Dr. Scott with the award at the organization's annual meeting in Austin, Texas on Thursday, December 1st.

"I am humbled to receive the Franc D. Ingraham Distinguished Service Award from my colleagues," said Dr. R. Michael Scott. "Every day I am inspired by the patients I treat. These children face life threatening illnesses, but they and their parents are amazingly resilient, and playing a part in their care is truly inspirational."

Dr. Scott's innovations include developing pial synangiosis for Moyamoya disease and novel advances in tumor, spinal, vascular, craniofacial endoscopic and epilepsy neurosurgery. During Dr. Scott's tenure, the Children's Department of Neurosurgery experienced significant growth and is now the largest pediatric neurosurgery department in the world. In addition to the surgical and technical advancements created by Dr. Scott, he also established the Shillito Pediatric Neurosurgery Fellowship in 1991, which yearly supports an outstanding young neurosurgeon as he or she pursues intensive, post-graduate training in pediatric neurosurgery.

"I am honored to present him with this award," said Dr. Alan Cohen. "I have known Dr. Scott for many years and I have witnessed his monumental advancements and contributions to the field of pediatric neurosurgery. From developing new surgical techniques to the empathy he shows concerned families in his care, Dr. Scott is a truly a legend."
