Dr. Skoch completed a pediatric neurosurgical fellowship at Cincinnati Children’s. Prior to residency training at the University of Arizona, he completed undergraduate study at Colgate University where he also began basic neuroscience research at the National Institutes of Health. He graduated with a degree in cellular neuroscience and went on to complete additional research at Harvard / Mass General Hospital before obtaining his medical degree at the University of Colorado.
Dr. Skoch’s clinical interests are the surgical treatment of pediatric epilepsy, brain tumors, craniofacial disorders, and spinal deformity. His research focuses on applying optical imaging techniques to help better define epileptic foci in the brain to make surgical treatment smaller, safer, and more effective.
Dr. Skoch has published more than 50 papers in peer-reviewed journals, authored book chapters, and garnered several awards for his scientific research. He is a member of the American Association of Neurological Surgeons, the Congress of Neurological Surgeons, and the pediatric section of the AANS/CNS.
