Pediatric Neurology & Neurosurgery
Life-Changing Care for Children with Neurological Disorders
Our pediatric neurologists and neurosurgeons work closely together to coordinate effective, comprehensive and innovative treatment plans for children with neurological illnesses. As leaders in pediatric neuroscience research, our experts are also aggressively exploring new strategies to optimize and individualize care for the entire spectrum of pediatric neurological disease.
Distinguished Expertise in Pediatric Neurological Disease
At the University of Chicago Medicine Comer Children's Hospital, our neurology and neurosurgery experts provide exceptional care for the most challenging pediatric neurological diseases.
Conditions & Services
Multidisciplinary programs devoted to specific neurological problems bring various specialists together, which makes it easier for children to receive comprehensive, coordinated and individualized care.
While our experts care for the full range of neurological conditions, we are particularly recognized for our treatment of brain and spinal tumors, congenital anomalies of the nervous system (birth defects), epilepsy (including intractable epilepsy), hydrocephalus, neurofibromatosis and tuberous sclerosis.
Diagnostic Accuracy & Precision
By mastering the latest advancements in neurological imaging and testing, our experts routinely confirm — and correct — diagnoses with confidence and precision. Armed with an accurate diagnosis, our team creates and customizes the most effective treatment plan for each child.
Complex Neurosurgical Care
Parents from around the world bring their children to our team for neurosurgical treatment of the most challenging cases. Our expertise ranges from standard approaches for removal of brain and spinal cord lesions to advanced computer-aided and minimally invasive techniques.
The experts on our team pride themselves on being at the forefront of pediatric care. That's why our comprehensive team of pediatric specialists, nurses and support staff spends so much one-on-one time with all of the children and their families, as we know first-hand the profound effect that caring and compassion can have on a child's prognosis.
Our patients often have access to new treatments years before they are widely available at other medical centers. Many of our neurologists and neurosurgeons are actively exploring promising new therapies for neurocutaneous disorders, epilepsy, neurofibromatosis and other neurological problems that affect children.
