Pediatric Neurosurgery Specialists | OLOL Children's Hospital

Pediatric Neurosurgery

Neurosurgeons specialize in the central nervous system—mainly the brain and spinal cord. Our expert neurosurgery team handles scheduled procedures for neurological patients as well as trauma cases referred from the emergency department.

Some neurological disorders require corrective surgeries to restore proper functioning of the nervous system. In cases of operable tumors, our neurosurgeons work closely with our team of pediatric oncologists to provide comprehensive care and treatment for your child.
