Dr. Tuite was the first neurosurgeon certified by the American Board of Pediatric Neurosurgeons to practice on Florida's west coast. He was given the Johns Hopkins All Children’s Armstrong Award for Excellence in Quality & Safety in the 2017 Johns Hopkins Medicine Clinical Excellence Awards. A graduate of Northwestern University School of Medicine, Dr. Tuite completed his general neurosurgical training at the University of Michigan. He then completed a fellowship at Great Ormond Street Hospital for Children in London, England, followed by a more specialized pediatric neurosurgery fellowship at Baylor University, where he focused on the surgical treatment of children with brain tumors, brachial plexus injuries and craniofacial disorders.
