Pediatric Neurosurgery

We in Pediatric Neurosurgery understand the importance of your trust in diagnosing and treating your child. Our neurosurgeons have received years of additional training to specialize in surgery for children, but our care extends beyond the operating room. We coordinate care with the wide range of experts in child health and family support services located right here at Children's Hospital. We believe this family-centered approach leads to less stress and better outcomes for your child.
