At the University of Chicago Medicine Comer Children's Hospital, pediatric neurosurgeons work closely with pediatric neurologists to provide the most up-to-date and effective treatment for the entire spectrum of neurological disease. When surgery is required, our neurosurgeons tailor their approach to the needs of each child. Every year, we perform hundreds of complex neurosurgical procedures on infants and children -- with expertise that ranges from standard approaches for removal of brain and spinal cord lesions, to advanced computer-aided and minimally invasive techniques.
Parents from across the country and around the world bring their children to Comer Children's for treatment of the most challenging neurological problems. While our pediatric neurosurgeons care for the full range of neurological conditions, we are particularly recognized for our treatment of congenital anomalies of the nervous system (birth defects) and hydrocephalus, brain and spinal tumors, and epilepsy.
