Meet our team
When a child is diagnosed with hydrocephalus, the entire family is faced with seemingly endless questions, concerns and a significant emotional toll. Boston Children's Hospital's experienced, compassionate health professionals are here to help you at every step of the way.
Here at Boston Children’s, you and your child will be cared for by experts from several key disciplines, all working together to develop the best possible treatment plan. Our Hydrocephalus Program includes some of the world’s most experienced neurosurgeons, neuroscience nurses, neuropsychologists and other health care professionals. Our strength in all of the related subspecialties ensures that we are ready to address every aspect of your child’s care, from initial diagnostic imaging and home-based shunt management to infection control and long-term family support.
Our team is specially trained in surgical and medical procedures for children, with an emphasis on using minimally invasive tests and operations whenever possible.
Children’s is a teaching affiliate of Harvard Medical School, where all of our physicians have faculty appointments. Just as we continue to provide exceptional patient care and medical expertise, our clinicians are also involved in research that moves us closer to a better understanding of—and treatment for—hydrocephalus and other diseases of the brain, spine and nervous system.
