The central nervous system (CNS) is composed of the brain and the spinal cord
Pediatric neurosurgery is the science of evaluating, diagnosing and treating children and infants with diseases of the nervous system, including the brain, spinal cord and peripheral nerves. It is also the art of caring for these patients and their families, sometimes under very challenging circumstances.

Areas of Expertise
The diagnosis and treatment of pediatric spinal disorders differs significantly from that of adult spinal disorders.
From the Greek words “hydro” (water) and “cephalus” (head), hydrocephalus is often referred to as ‘water on the brain’.
