Dr. Zwagerman received the Student's Golden Heart Award as a fourth year medical student as voted on by his peers for his work in research and his volunteer activity. In 2016, he was awarded the American Association of Neurological Surgeons Synthes Skull Base Award for his work with Dr. Paul Gardner for a randomized controlled trial of lumbar drain placement after endoscopic skull base surgery. More recently, in 2017, he was awarded the American Association of Neurological Surgeons' First Place Peripheral Nerve Eposter Award.
“I believe that treating patients is more than simply treating the problem they present with. The best way to treat each patient is to discover what is important in their lives, educate about the presenting problem, and formulate a treatment strategy that takes all of these things together to arrive at a treatment plan.”
