Innovation and Research
When you come to Children’s Hospital Boston’s Neurosurgery Department, you’ll meet experienced neurosurgeons who are extensively familiar with children’s developing brains and specially trained to perform precise surgeries that minimize impact on healthy, surrounding tissue.
Our team is always looking for ways to improve brain surgery and make the experience easier for children and their families. Our breakthroughs—taking place in our clinics, as well as in our basic science laboratories—play a critical role in your child’s health. We are continually developing and refining minimally invasive techniques as alternatives to traditional brain and spinal cord surgeries.
Our team is also actively involved in research projects to improve understanding of why brain diseases occur, and to help develop better methods of early detection to ensure that these conditions have as little impact as possible on a child’s developing brain
