Overview

As a parent and surgeon, Dr. Densmore values the parental perspective and considers it a privilege to care for children. While he likes basing plans on the best medical data available, he approaches every patient and their family with an open mind and realizes that the best plan may be influenced by other factors at home or the child’s history. Dr. Densmore favors minimally invasive surgical approaches when feasible and enjoys complex surgical problems. Children’s Hospital of Wisconsin is a terrific place to work, and he feels lucky to have great collaborations with a broad cast of medical colleagues to offer the most thoughtful care to our children.
