The Power of Innovation Starts with Collaboration

The Brain Care Institute of Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh of UPMC offers access to some of the most skilled neurosurgeons and neuro-oncologists in pediatric medicine.

Known around the world for their outstanding care, our board-certified neurosurgeons treat babies, children, and young adults with brain and spinal cord diseases or injuries.

These doctors work hand in hand with other experts — such as neuroimaging and neurocritical care — to provide the best possible outcomes for every child who undergoes neurosurgery.

Treating a Wide Range of Childhood Brain and Spinal Cord Conditions

The neurosurgeons at Children's Brain Care Institute have a wealth of expertise in brain and spinal cord disorders, including:

  • Movement disorders
  • Peripheral nerve and brachial plexus injuries
  • Spina bifida
  • Spinal malformations

Through our ongoing neurosurgery research, we're strengthening, growing, and refining pediatric neurosurgery as a whole.
