What Are Pediatric Neurosurgeons?
Pediatric neurosurgeons are subspecialized doctors highly skilled in executing intricate surgeries on the brain, spinal cord and nerves of newborns, children and teens. These neurosurgeons perform surgeries that include the removal of tumors, correction of hydrocephalus by shunts, removal of brain blood vessel malformations, and spina bifida. They treat congenital neurodevelopmental defects like spasticity and epilepsy that are not responding to medication.
Affiliated pediatric neurosurgeons are board-certified or board-eligible experts that have completed a rigorous residency in neurosurgery after medical school followed by advanced training pediatric neurosurgery.
