What is a Pediatric Neurosurgeon?
Pediatric neurosurgeons treat children who have medical difficulties that involve the nervous system, head or spine. They treat children that are born with congenital conditions as well as illnesses or injuries that develop in their later childhood years. They specialize in the neurological issues of children, which can be quite different from those issues experienced by adults.
Because treating many childhood neurological disorders can be a lifelong process, most pediatric neurosurgeons end up having a long-term relationship with their patients. They treat them quite often and, as a result, take a very personal interest in their patients.
Pediatric Neurosurgeons — The Best Care for Children
Treating children is much different than treating adults. Neurosurgeons that specialize in pediatric care know how to work with kids. They are experienced in dealing with children who are uncooperative or afraid, and they have the ability to communicate with kids who have difficulty expressing themselves. Most pediatric neurosurgeons work in facilities that are thoughtfully designed to make children feel comfortable. Through the use of specialized medical equipment and examination and waiting rooms that are child-friendly, pediatric neurosurgeons can offer the best care to your child.
Because childhood neurological disorders require lifelong care, pediatric neurosurgeons work hand in hand with your child’s pediatrician and primary care providers. They usually work with children’s hospitals to perform diagnostic services and surgery in an environment that is best suited to care for your child.
If your pediatrician has referred your child to a pediatric neurosurgeon, you can be certain that your child will receive the most comprehensive care available for his or her condition. A pediatric neurosurgeon has the training and experience to provide your child with every available treatment option.
