We specialize in:

  • Chiari malformations
  • Craniofacial anomalies

  • Pediatric trauma 
  • Peripheral nerve problems
  • Spasticity/cerebral palsy 
  • Spina bifida
  • Surgical treatment of epilepsy
  • Syringomyelia

Many conditions are treated in multidisciplinary clinics, so that children see several specialists all in one visit.

Pediatric Neurosurgery at CHaD includes state-of-the-art operative equipment including two MRI image guidance systems, intraoperative neurophysiologic monitoring, and the latest technologic advances to enhance the safety and effectiveness of neurosurgical treatments.
