Treating Serious Disorders With the Greatest Care
Overseeing the Effective Treatment of Neurological Disorders
Neurological disorders in children can be very different from those in adults. That’s why Florida Hospital for Children has a team that is dedicated to nothing but treating acute neurological problems such as epilepsy, tumors and neurofibromatosis. Professional, highly talented and experienced, our Pediatric Neurosurgery team is on call 24 hours, seven days a week for urgent and emergent problems.
Managing Vascular Malformations
The vascular structure of a child is very complex, not only because it is still developing but also because it is so small. As such, children can be prone to diseases that require exceptional pediatric surgical experience to treat effectively. Left unchecked, vascular diseases can lead to a general mental decline and the potential of multiple strokes because of a narrowing of the arteries. Our experienced team of neurosurgeons utilizes a number of surgical options to treat narrow or malformed vascular structures so that normal flow can be restored.
