This may be disappointing to some expectant mothers who are in the last few weeks of pregnancy. However, the last four weeks of pregnancy are essential to a baby’s development. The baby’s brain almost doubles in size in the last few weeks. Below Jennifer Gallagher-Cockrum talks more about the importance of the 39-week initiative.

As a combat neurosurgeon in Iraq, Dr. Lee Warren performed 200 brain surgeries in a tent hospital that rarely had enough resources. Today, he brings that experience to Advantage Orthopedics and Neurosurgery where he is helping to build Wyoming’s best brain and spine program. “No question. Being in a war zone made me a better neurosurgeon. I never stop fighting for my patients,” he said. https://youtu.be/qJN1BrO9ru8

When she needed a new hip, Ellen Gray chose Advantage Orthopedics and Neurosurgery. And for good reason. A few years before, she was LifeFlighted to Wyoming Medical Center after developing a blood clot at another hospital. The doctors and nurses here saved Ellen’s life. So it was only natural that when Ellen needed a hip replacement, she felt better about choosing Advantage—the only practice in the state backed by the hospital with the best safety rating in Wyoming.
