What Is a Pediatric Neurosurgeon?
A pediatric neurosurgeon is a physician who specializes in treating infants, children, and teens who have problems involving the head, spine, or nervous system. Neurosurgical problems seen by pediatric neurosurgeons are often quite different from those commonly seen by adult or general neurosurgeons.
