Letter to the Editor

Sir: We appreciate Dr. Dean’s careful review and thoughtful comments about our article.1 Regarding the cost of the neurosurgical procedure we described, we do not believe that economic arguments should enter into our clinical decision making. Our primary concern is the patient’s well-being.
