There are more than 28,000 reasons why our neurology and neurosurgery services were ranked No. 6 in the nation in the 2015-16 list of America’s best pediatric hospitals published by U.S. News & World Report.
That’s how many visits here families make each year to find answers when they need help for children with unexplainable headaches, out-of-control seizures, or rare brain and nervous system conditions like tuberous sclerosis, Duchenne muscular dystrophy, or cerebral palsy.
How do we make a difference? Ask the family of 9-year-old Nick Tuley of Hamilton, Ohio. Earlier this year, Nick became the first patient to receive epilepsy surgery using a new MRI-guided laser system that can destroy seizure-causing tissue without the need for a large opening in the skull.
Investing in new technology is just one of several reasons why our neurology and neurosurgery services stand out.
“We have faculty in every subspecialty in child neurology, which is not common, even among top pediatric hospitals,” says Andrew Hershey, MD, PhD, endowed chair of neurology. “And the impact of our research programs continues to grow and help children and families everywhere.”
“We provide the highest-level of surgical expertise, but surgery is not always the answer for the children we treat,” says Francesco Mangano, DO, director of the Division of Neurosurgery. “We have a culture of collaboration at Cincinnati Children’s that is not found at many other centers. So when patients come here, we gather all the experts from multiple disciplines around the table to agree upon the best option for each patient. As a result, treatment occurs faster and is provided in the least invasive way.”
