Pediatric Brain and Spine Trauma

If your child experiences a traumatic brain or spine injury, they will need to be evaluated by a neurosurgeon who is experienced in pediatric care. Your physician may use a neurological exam, diagnostic imaging, or other test to help diagnose the injury.

Depending on the severity of the injury, your child’s treatment may include:

  • Observation and/or monitoring
  • Medication
  • Surgery

Treatment may include emergency care to prevent further damage. Our pediatric neurosurgeons make it a priority to clearly communicate with patients and their families so they can make well informed decisions about brain and spine injuries.
