Know a good pediatric neurosurgeon?

For the past three weeks we keep circling back to the same question: who are the best pediatric neurosurgeons for epilepsy and with which epilepsy center are they affiliated?

We know that we want to go to an epilepsy center because then the team of doctors that will work with Evan will all be at the same place, but how do you choose? We selected Johns Hopkins because they have such a good reputation, with the added benefit of being nearby, but there are also epilepsy centers at UVA, Children's DC, Philadelphia, Pittsburgh and Boston (to name a few).

It is so hard to research doctors though and although we have a few names, we don't know how to get any statistical information about them. We're open to suggestions if anyone has any ideas.
