Pediatric Neurosurgery

At Pediatric Neurosurgery, we provide comprehensive care to children suffering from neurological disorders from premature infants to adolescents. Our fellowship trained pediatric neurosurgeons treat disorders of the brain, spine and nervous system, often involving serious symptoms that may require complex surgical treatments. Some of these conditions include:

  • Hydrocephalus
  • Spasticity
  • Craniosynostosis
  • Brain tumors
  • Contential malformations of the brain and spinal cord

Children’s anatomy and physiology are different from adults like the disorders that affect them and at Children’s Hospital, our physicians are trained to meet the special needs of your child. Our neurosurgical specialists provide advanced clinical care with a focus on using minimally invasive techniques whenever possible.

We consider you and your child integral parts of the care team—not simply recipients of care. We specialize in family-centered treatment, which means that from your first visit, you’ll work with a team of professionals who are committed to meeting your child’s medical needs while providing emotional, psychosocial and educational support for your family.

Why choose Children’s Hospital?

Comprehensive support programs. We know that neurological disorders, especially in children, affect quality of life and the ability to perform basic daily tasks. We believe it’s important to treat the entire person, not just the disease. That’s why we offer support groups, psychological support services, and in-depth patient education programs for the entire family.

Advanced medical records technology. Our secure online portal, MyChart, allows you to view test results, make appointments, request prescription refills, and message your child’s doctor using any web-enabled device. Our technology also allows anyone on your child’s care team, including their pediatrician, to securely access your child’s health information.

Children’s Hospital Supportive Care Team. The debilitating effects of serious illness are often magnified by physical, mental and spiritual pain and suffering. Our supportive care experts partner with your child, your family, and your medical team to help your child find relief.
