Our team understands that children are not just miniature adults. They have their own unique physiology and problems. Pediatric neurosurgery is exclusively practiced by approximately 300 surgeons in the United States. Board certification in pediatric neurosurgery requires additional training and certification above that required for certification in general neurosurgery (adult and pediatric). We partner closely with neurology, neuro-oncology, neuropsychology hematology and radiology.

The Pediatric Neurosurgery Program at Johns Hopkins All Children's Hospital in St. Petersburg, Florida, is one of the largest in the Southeast and provides comprehensive pediatric neurosurgery care for patients throughout Florida, the United States and the world. Our inpatient Surgical Neuroscience Unit has 28 individual patient rooms. For enhanced continuity of care and follow-up, we see patients in our main facility and also at Johns Hopkins All Children's Outpatient Care locations in East Lake, Fort Myers, Tampa, Sarasota and Lakeland.

We specialize in the surgical treatment of a wide range of problems including:

  • Traumatic Brain Injury: Jaden's Story

    When Jaden suffered a traumatic brain injury during a boat accident, multiple specialists at Johns Hopkins All Children’s came together to save the 13-year-old’s life. Now he’s surpassing every expectation with the help of his expert care team, his own positive attitude and his family’s support.

  • Traumatic Brain Injury: Jake's Story

    A neighbor discovered Jake and his wrecked Onewheel and called 911. The teen was airlifted by LifeLine, a critical care transport team, to Johns Hopkins All Children’s Emergency Center and admitted to the PICU. With support from the hospital’s Institute for Brain Protection Sciences and his family and community, Jake has continued to make a remarkable recovery.
