Bermans Iskandar



Dr. Iskandar’s areas of clinical expertise include Chiari malformation and syringomyelia, brachial plexus reconstruction, and endoscopic surgery for tumors and congenital brain anomalies. He gained national recognition for novel imaging techniques aimed at minimizing the radiation exposure of children with hydrocephalus, as well as developing new technology to analyze the craniocervical CSF flow in children with Chiari malformation and Syringomyelia. Dr. Iskandar has committed a portion of his time to run a basic laboratory research, in which he studies folic acid supplementation and ways to repair the central nervous system (brain and spinal cord) after injury.   Drs. Iskandar, Ahmed, and Stadler and their compassionate team of nurses and staff are committed to giving the children of Wisconsin and surrounding regions the best neurosurgical care possible.
