Neurosurgery - Pediatric

Backed by the Kentucky Neuroscience Institute and Kentucky Children’s Hospital, the UK HealthCare Pediatric Neurosurgery program treats children from infancy through adolescence for conditions affecting the brain, spine or nervous system. These issues may be congenital or the result of injury.

They include:

  • Arteriovenous malformations (AVMs)
  • Brain tumors
  • Cerebral aneurysms
  • Cerebral palsy
  • Chiari malformations
  • Craniosynostosis
  • Epilepsy
  • Hydrocephalus
  • Spasticity
  • Spina bifida
  • Spinal tumors

These problems may differ from problems affecting adult patients who require neurosurgery. UK pediatric neurosurgeon Dr. Brandon Miller has extensive training in the neurological problems that affect children. He and his team combine personalized care with advanced treatment options chosen specifically to give each child the best possible outcome.
