Pediatric Neurosurgery

What is a Pediatric Neurosurgeon?

If your child has problems involving the head, spine, or nervous system, a pediatric neurosurgeon has the experience and qualifications to treat your child.
Neurosurgical problems seen by pediatric neurosurgeons are often quite different from those commonly seen by adult or general neurosurgeons. Special training in pediatric diseases as they relate to pediatric neurosurgical diseases is important. Pediatric neurosurgical problems often are present for life. Pediatric neurosurgeons have a special and longstanding relationship with their patients. Children with nervous system problems frequently require ongoing and close follow-up throughout childhood and adolescence.
