What is a Pediatric Neurosurgeon?
If your child has problems involving the head,
spine, or nervous system, a pediatric neuro-
surgeon has the experience and qualifica-
tions to treat your child. Neurosurgical
problems seen by pediatric neurosurgeons
are often quite different from those commonly
seen by adult or general neurosurgeons.

The Section on Neurological Surgery has been
specifically created to address the issues common to
pediatric neurosurgery: patient management, continuing
education, clinical research, and interaction with the
members of the American Academy of Pediatrics, in an
effort to improve the care of infants, children, adolescents
and young adults with neurosurgical disorders.

The Section focuses on interdisciplinary educational
activities and development of joint programs that would
benefit, not only the Section members, but the primary
care pediatrician as well. The Section is actively involved
in assisting the American Academy of Pediatrics in
developing practice parameters and position papers on
issues related to the child with a neurosurgical disease.

Membership in the Section is open to physicians
boarded in Neurological Surgery by the American Board
of Neurological Surgery and/ or the Royal College of
Physicians and Surgeons of Canada, who devote 75% of
their practice to the care of infants, children, adolescents
and young adults through age twenty-one.

The members of this Section will benefit in the interactive
process with the American Academy of Pediatrics not
only from the educational standpoint but also from prac-
tice development.
