The Division of Pediatric Neurosurgery at the University of Utah has three core missions: 1) It is committed to delivering the highest possible quality of clinical care to patients with neurosurgical disease in a setting of compassion and understanding; 2) It is committed to educating and preparing pediatric neurosurgical trainees of all types for the challenges of tomorrow; and 3) It is committed to conducting research that brings further understanding to the field of pediatric neurosurgery.
The Division offers a full range of services for children with neurological-related disorders, including tumors, hydrocephalus, epilepsy, movement disorders, and other conditions. Our clinicians are experts in treating a wide variety of brain, spinal cord, and nervous systems conditions in children and adolescents, including a full spectrum of care, from initial diagnosis through treatment and recovery.
Our team consists of four ABPNS-certified or -eligible surgeons, one pediatric neurosurgical fellow, two residents, two advanced NP’s and one RN. We serve a large portion of the Mountain West, providing world-class neurosurgical care to our patients while striving to achieve the above goals on a daily basis. U.S. News and World Report ranks our program in the Top 10 for Neurology and Neurosurgery.
