Our Experts

Our neurosurgeons are among the finest in the world. Patients and their families come from all over the globe to seek the opinion of this team. Our commitment to care also includes a commitment to make every possible effort to evaluate and treat children as soon as possible.

Working together, our physicians routinely perform delicate neurosurgery on children of all ages. Specializing in disease-related conditions as well as congenital or developmental problems that appear in infancy or early childhood, our goal is to minimize the risks and maximize treatment and functionality after surgery.
