In 1929, Boston Children's Hospital physicians Harvey Cushing, MD, and Franc Ingraham, MD, established the Department of Neurosurgery at the hospital—marking the introduction of pediatric neurosurgery as a formally recognized field.
By their personal example, Cushing and Ingraham encouraged an institutional culture of rigorous observation, meticulous surgical technique and persistent innovation, combined with a continuing emphasis on teaching and publication. That culture thrives in our Department of Neurosurgery to this day.
Today, Boston Children's continues to attract the most accomplished neurosurgeons and promising neurosurgical residents to pursue their research and practice in this challenging environment.
The future of pediatrics will be forged by thinking differently, breaking paradigms and joining together in a shared vision of tackling the toughest challenges before us.”
