Pediatric Neurology

Beaumont Children's Hospital offers advanced technology for treating pediatric neurology patients. Pediatric neurologists, neurosurgeons and interventional neuroradiologists are available to treat a variety of neurological conditions in infants and children.

As the only hospital in southeast Michigan providing interventional treatment of brain aneurysms and anterior venous malformations and vascular tumors in infants and children, Beaumont Children's Hospital offers pediatric neurological treatments that reduce or eliminate the need for traditional surgery methods.

Our state-of-the-art pediatric intensive care unit offers dedicated pediatric specialists in every discipline of medicine and surgery who assist with your child's care around the clock.

And since Beaumont, Royal Oak, is a Level I trauma center, experts are skilled and equipped to handle the most severe head and spine trauma issues.

For pediatric head and spine tumors, we offer a multidisciplinary approach that includes experts from pediatric neurology, neurosurgery, hematology/oncology and radiation oncology. Specialists from each of these areas meet on an ongoing basis to review cases and develop appropriate treatment plans for each patient.

If radiation oncology is part of the treatment plan, Beaumont offers gamma knife radiosurgery. Through this advanced technology, we are able to precisely target the tumor, so surrounding tissue is not damaged.
