In this article, we explore the groundbreaking work of Dr. Elizabeth Tyler-Kabara, a leading figure in pediatric neurosurgery at UT Health Austin Pediatric Neurosciences at Dell Children’s. With a mission to provide world-class care and advance the future of neurological health, Tyler-Kabara is working to bring minimally invasive skull base procedures to infants and children, surgeries that were once considered too complex. In addition to performing surgeries, she is devoted to training the next generation of neurosurgeons and advancing research in the field. Amidst the challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic, Tyler-Kabara’s work has filled a vital gap in Austin’s healthcare landscape, offering highly specialized, local care to patients who might otherwise have to travel significant distances. Looking forward, her focus is on improving transition care, the critical phase when patients move from pediatric to adult healthcare systems. Tyler-Kabara’s work exemplifies the integration of medical practice, teaching, and research to revolutionize patient care.
