Our pediatric neurosurgeons, often working in multidisciplinary teams, treat a full range of central nervous system problems that may present prenatally, in infancy or in childhood.

Among the disorders routinely treated are brain and spine tumors, traumatic brain and spinal cord injury, abnormalities of the spine and skull base, hydrocephalus, spina bifida, craniofacial anomalies, spacticity and epilepsy, and congenital anomalies of the brain and spinal cord.

Such procedures as third ventriculostomy and arachnoid cyst drainage are routinely performed with endoscopic instruments.
