Pediatric Neurosurgery

UBNS' pediatric neurosurgery program is led by Dr. Veetai Li-a fellowship-trained, board certified neurosurgeon and member of the Joint Section on Pediatric Neurosurgery, the American Society of Pediatric Neurosurgeons, and the Children's Oncology Group (COG). Under his leadership, the pediatric neurosurgery team specializes in the practice of minimally invasive neurosurgical techniques that allow for the more precise and less traumatic treatment of brain tumors, brain lesions, and other neurological disorders in children less than 18 years old. Pediatric conditions treated by UBNS include, but are not limited to:

  • Arteriovenous malformations & fistulas
  • Brain tumors
  • Congenital malformations
  • Craniofacial anomalies
  • Epilepsy
  • Hydrocephalus
  • Spasticity
  • Rhizotomy
  • Spinal Dysraphism/Spina Bifida
  • Brain & spine trauma

Treatment and diagnostic capabilities include endoscopic neurosurgery, stereotaxis, frameless stereotaxis, intraoperative functional mapping, and a host of specialized treatment programs.
