Neurosurgery - 616.742.5902
Our pediatric neurosurgey program uses advanced technology and leading- edge protocols to diagnose, treat and manage nervous system disorders in infants, children and teens, including congenital neurological conditions and traumatic injury or illness.
As the only dedicated pediatric neurosurgical program in the region, we have brought new capabilities and advanced procedures to West Michigan.
Our team focuses on minimally invasive techniques, which promote faster recovery, less trauma and fewer side effects. Pediatric neurosurgeon Stanley Skarli, MD, has pioneered two innovative procedures: minimally invasive endoscopic surgery for brain tumors and minimally invasive selective dorsal rhizotomy for children with spasticity.
