Pediatric Neurosurgery

Our pediatric neurosurgery team—including nationally recognized physicians—provides care for children who have conditions affecting the nervous system. We offer consultation, education, and treatment for traumatic brain and spinal cord injury; tumors of the skull, brain, and spinal cord; congenital malformations; hydrocephalus; spina bifida; and tethered spinal cord. We also provide minimally invasive and advanced endoscopic procedures, as well as evaluation and surgical treatment of Chiari malformations and vascular malformations of the brain and spinal cord.
