Pediatric Neurosurgery

Mattel Children's Hospital Rated one of the Best Hospitals in Neurology & Neurosurgery care for 2010-2011

The multifaceted UCLA Pediatric Neurosurgery Program provides comprehensive services to children suffering from diseases that affect the developing brain and spinal cord. We treat children with Chiari malformation, epilepsy, brain tumors, hydrocephalus, neurovascular disorders, spina bifida, tethered cord and craniofacial malformations.

We measure our success by high school diplomas, bar mitzvahs, holy communions, and track and field awards. We strive to protect our patient's dreams. Having followed this philosophy for 20 years, we can look back at our patients and be proud of their achievements in life. All those magnificent children, many of them adult now, give us confidence and inspiration to continue looking for new ways to improve the quality of life of every child who is our patient.
