U.S. News & World Report ranks our Neurosurgery program #4 in the country–the only top 10 ranked program in DC, Maryland or Virginia.
The neurosurgery team at Children’s National Health System treats children from around the region, the country, and the world. We manage the most complex neurological cases, including brain tumors, craniofacial abnormalities, and epilepsy. The skilled specialists at Children’s National perform hundreds of procedures every year, making our team one of the most experienced in the nation.
At Children’s National, we combine the compassion and personal attention of a private practice with the resources and research of an academic medical institution. Our philosophy of care is simple: Your children are our children, and we will not rest until we have done everything possible to ensure their health and well-being. As part of our commitment to your child’s care, our neurosurgeons routinely see patients every single day, including weekends. Our care doesn’t end when the surgery is over. We follow up with your child for years, evaluating his or her progress and discussing the results with you in-depth.
Features of our neurosurgery services include:
"On her seventh birthday, a few of the nurses got together to sing to my daughter for her birthday. It brought tears to my eyes because they had became my support system, my family, and my friends."
