From consultations with parents-to-be to follow-up appointments with young adult patients, our pediatric neurosurgery specialists offer the most advanced medical care available, along with compassionate understanding and support for patients with pediatric neurosurgical conditions.

We provide comprehensive services to infants, toddlers, school-age children, adolescents and young adults for common problems including:

  • Hydrocephalus
  • Brain and spinal cord tumors
  • Spina bifida
  • Craniofacial disorders (i.e., craniosynostosis)

Our reputation for surgical excellence combined with our understanding of the special needs of children and families who live with neurological diseases rank us among the finest Pediatric Neurosurgery sections in the country. In addition, the Yale New Haven Children's Hospital is the only hospital in the state to have a dedicated pediatric intensive care unit (PICU), providing the highest level of care to children with neurological conditions.
