Expert Team

The expert physicians at the Pediatric Neurosurgery Program include a team of pediatric specialists in the following areas:  neurologists, neuroradiologists, neuro- and radiation- oncologists, ophthalmologists, geneticists, neuro-psychologists, rehabilitation specialists, neonatologists and perinatologists, craniofacial and plastic surgeons, pediatric anesthesiologists, neuropathologists and neurophysiologists, all with extensive experience with the tiniest patients.

The Pediatric Neurosurgery Program team members are actively involved in writing and collaborating for peer-reviewed publications.

Many of the physicians who have medical staff privileges to practice medicine at
Cedars-Sinai Medical Center are independent physicians, and not employees or agents of the hospital. These independent physicians bill separately for their services. You should contact your physician to determine their status and billing practices.
