Pediatric Neurosurgery

Penn State Children's Hospital offers a comprehensive Pediatric Neurological Surgery Program with the only two fellowship-trained, full-time pediatric neurosurgeons outside of Pittsburgh and Philadelphia. They are both certified by the American Board of Neurological Surgery and The American Board of Pediatric Neurosurgery.

Their specialty training has prepared them to treat the most complex disorders that can affect a child's brain and spinal cord. Taking a team approach to each child's diagnosis and therapy, pediatric neurosurgeons and physicians work together with clinical specialty nurses and other health care professionals, all using the most advanced techniques and instrumentation available.

Our pediatric neurosurgeons are involved in national organizations, and are members of the Joint Section on Pediatric Neurological Surgery and the American Society of Pediatric Neurosurgeons. They are members of the Hydrocephalus Association and the Spina Bifida Association of America.
