Expert neurosurgical care for infants, children and adolescents
The neurosurgery team at Dayton Children’s Hospital provides specialized, multidisciplinary care for children with conditions affecting the brain, spinal cord and peripheral nerves. Families who depend on our neurosurgical team know they are in good hands, and that our specialists will be able to address whatever needs arise.
Our pediatric neurosurgeons have on average 20 years of experience and have trained and worked at some of the top hospitals in the world before bringing their expertise to the Dayton region.
Each of our neurosurgeons are fellowship trained, with extensive experience in performing complex procedures. They take a conservative approach, pursuing non-surgical and minimally invasive techniques whenever possible. The neurosurgeons at Dayton Children’s also have experience performing surgeries that are only done by a few pediatric physicians nationwide and make it a goal to continue to bring the latest neurosurgical techniques and technology to Dayton Children’s as soon as they become available.
The neurosurgeons collaborate with other specialists at the hospital to ensure that each child receives comprehensive, coordinated care. These specialists can include neurologists, emergency medicine physicians, neonatologists, maternal-medicine specialists, oncologists, genetic counselors, rehabilitation therapists and many more.
Dayton Children’s participates in research studies with Miami Valley Hospital’s neurosurgery department as part of the Wright State University and Premier Health Neuroscience Institute. This means patients and families have opportunities to participate in research studies designed to enhance neurosurgical care.
