Specialties

Dr. Brian B Nielsen has the following 2 specialties

  • Orthopaedic Surgery of the Spine
  • Pediatric Surgery

    A pediatric surgeon is a qualified surgeon who has additional training in performing surgery on young patients, including fetuses (neonatal or fetal surgery), infants, children, adolescents and teenagers.
    Because pediatric patients are still growing and developing, they are often more difficult to operate on than adults. These patients have smaller bodies and smaller organs requiring even more of a precise and measured approach by a surgeon.
    Some of the conditions that may require the care of a pediatric surgeon are congenital malformations, such as cleft lip and palate, abdominal wall defects, like hernias, deformities of the chest wall, childhood tumors, like neuroblastomas and separation of conjoined twins.

Great

He operated on both of my 18 year old sons knees. Instantly knew the problem, explained it so we could understand. Will see again if need arises.

So far so good....

My daughters diagnosis scared me but Dr. Nielsen has given me some assurance in spite of our bad news she would be okay. After her surgery I will follow up and give an update on her experience and nine as a parent.

Highly Recommend

Dr. Neilsen performed surgery on my knee 4 years ago and did a great job. He was so thorough in his explanations before and after surgery and answered every question I had until I felt confident that surgery was the right thing for me. The hard part of the recovery took a week and I followed up with a physical therapist after that as he recommended. I feel good as new.
