Our pediatric operating rooms are specially staffed and equipped to care for premature newborns through young adults. In addition, our pediatric intensive care unit team is staffed 24-hours-a-day with an in-house pediatric intensivist team with expertise in the pre- and postoperative care of pediatric brain and spinal cord surgery patients.

Our growing pediatric brain tumor program offers appropriately aggressive surgical care with a pediatric neuro-oncologist. Children are offered access to investigational multi-institutional brain tumor protocols.
We also offer surgical options for pediatric epilepsy and we are one of the few centers nationally offering comprehensive surgical management of hypothalamic hamartoma, a rare but devastating cause of intractable epilepsy in children.
