Our neurology and neurosurgery services are ranked No. 4 in the nation in the 2016-17 list of America’s best pediatric hospitals published by U.S. News & World Report. The improvement of two spots from last year’s ranking is a testament to our quality of care, sense of collaboration and international reach.
Families come here from all over the world, searching for the best experts to provide answers to their children’s unexplainable headaches, out-of-control seizures, or rare brain and nervous system conditions like tuberous sclerosis, Duchenne muscular dystrophy, or cerebral palsy.
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.”
Our neurosurgery team performed its first MRI-guided stereotactic laser ablation for intractable epilepsy, and continues to explore “smart bomb” virus therapy for high-grade glioma brain tumors. In the coming year we will be expanding our surgical services in epilepsy by adding a second neurosurgeon to the team and employing stereo-EEG (electroencephalogram) to further assist in difficult to localize epilepsy.
“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.”
