About Dr. Pang
Fellowship trained in pediatric neurosurgery, Dr. Pang also has a strong interest in spine and functional neurosurgery. She enjoys working with a diverse patient base from infants to older adults with a thoughtful, comprehensive, and multidisciplinary approach. With her training in pediatrics, she is able to crossover minimally invasive techniques for a general population. She is experienced in providing care for all aspects of pediatric and general adult neurosurgery, including brain and spine trauma, spina bifida, brain and spine tumors, degenerative spine, tethered cord, Chiari malformations, and other congenital disorders. In her free time, Dr. Pang enjoys yoga, surfing, climbing, running, gardening, and exploring the Pacific Northwest with her dog, Taggart.
