Pediatric NeurosurgeryOur team of pediatric neurosurgeons—certified by the American Board of Pediatric Neurological Surgery—work to ensure your child receives the latest and most in-depth care possible for whatever neurological disease or disorder they are faced with. We take a compassionate, family-centered approach to care, understanding that children aren’t simply small people who suffer from the same diseases as adults and respond to the same surgical solutions. Rather, children have specific illnesses and require care by those with specialized knowledge and training in surgical treatment for children.
