Children are not simply smaller patients but ones with unique conditions and considerations. When they require neurosurgical care, a heightened sense of urgency and importance naturally follows. IU School of Medicine faculty surgeons who specialize in pediatric neurosurgery are highly skilled in complex procedures and provide exceptional care to these patients.
IU School of Medicine pediatric neurosurgeons are part of IU Health Physicians, the school’s multidisciplinary practice plan. As such, they work hand-in-hand with nationally recognized experts in neurology, oncology, neonatology, craniofacial abnormalities and other specialties to provide comprehensive care for the full range of neurologic injuries and disorders.
These faculty physicians treat patients at Riley Hospital for Children at IU Health, the state’s largest children’s hospital and the only level 1 pediatric trauma center in Indiana. This nationally recognized hospital is home to the state’s only comprehensive pediatric surgical epilepsy program.
