Pediatric Neurosurgery

Pediatric Neurosurgery is the surgical subspecialty that diagnoses, manages and treats a wide array of conditions affecting the children’s central and peripheral nervous systems and their supporting structures. After obtaining a medical degree and undergoing rigorous training during a 7 year neurosurgical residency, the pediatric neurosurgeon undertakes  a pediatric neurosurgery fellowship to ultimately achieve subspecialty board certification. Treating children is not treating little adults. Children have a unique body composition and their own set of unique issues, problems and challenges. The long and demanding training prepares the surgeon to deal with those unique challenges in a successful and compassionate fashion.  The conditions treated by Dr Jimenez include:

  • Brain and Spinal Cord tumors
  • Chiari I and II Malformations
  • Craniosynostosis
  • Simple and Complex Hydrocephalus
  • Spina Bifida (Open and Occult)
  • Intracranial Cysts
  • Arachnoid Cysts
  • Intracranial Bleeds
  • Skull Tumors, Defects and Fractures
  • Brain Herniations (Encephaloceles)
  • Tethered Spinal Cord
  • Dermoid Cysts
  • Epilepsy/Seizures
  • Brain and Spine Trauma
  • Spine Instability

If your child has any of these conditions and you would like a consultation with Dr Jimenez, please contact us at 210-87 NEURO
