Dr. Myseros came to Children's National from Cincinnati Children's Hospital in 2004, and now serves as the Vice Chief of the Division of Neurosurgery and the Chief of Pediatric Neurosurgery in Northern Virginia. Although his primary focus is on the surgical care of children with tumors of the brain and spinal cord, he cares for children with all pediatric diseases that require neurosurgery, including chiari malformations, vascular malformations, and spina bifida. These are all conditions on which he has published. In addition to maintaining a practice at Children's National in Washington, DC, Dr. Myseros and the pediatric neurosurgery team have an office in Fairfax, Va, and operate on and care for children at Inova Hospital in Fairfax, Va.
