We are part of the Lucile Packard Children's Hospital Brain and Behavior Center and the Center for Children’s Brain Tumors.
Effective Pediatric Neurosurgical Treatment and a High Quality of LifeOur goal is to provide your child with effective neurosurgical treatment and the best chance for healthy growth, development and daily function after surgery. We use innovative and advanced neurosurgical techniques that allow us to treat diseased areas while leaving healthy tissue undisturbed. These techniques include minimally invasive neurosurgery, advanced image guidance during surgery, and a pediatric-specific Cyberknife system.
Comprehensive, Family-Centered CareFamily-centered care. You are an expert when it comes to your child, and you are an important member of your child’s care team. We partner with you to provide a personalized plan of care. We believe this family-centered partnership provides the best possible care for your child.
Team approach. We know that conditions that require neurosurgery can have profound effects on your child’s and family’s lives. We work with our colleagues throughout the hospital to provide comprehensive care to meet your child’s and family’s medical, social and psychological needs.
Timely, continuous care throughout your child’s life. Our doctors and nurse practitioners make every effort to be available immediately to meet your child’s and family’s needs. We also make continuity of care a priority throughout your child’s life. This includes regular follow-up clinic visits and clinical and radiological assessment as needed as your child grows.
Neurosurgery ResearchOur team members are actively involved in basic and clinical research in the Center for Children’s Brain Tumors. Several projects are underway to improve brain tumor treatments for children and, ultimately, to cure pediatric brain and spinal cord tumors.
