Welcome to the Division of Pediatric Neurosurgery at the University of Florida College of Medicine-Jacksonville. Our pediatric neurosurgeons provide state-of-the-art neurosurgical care for infants, children and adolescents in greater Jacksonville, Fla.

Our division provides patient care services at UF Health Jacksonville and Wolfson Children's Hospital. In 2005, the Lucy Gooding Charitable Foundation Trust provided funding to help establish the UF Pediatric Neurosurgery Center at Wolfson Children's Hospital to help solidify a regional center for comprehensive neurosurgical care for children.

Our division provides surgical treatment for an array of disorders of the nervous system, including diseases of the brain, spinal cord, nerves and muscles. We specialize in the treatment of craniosynostosis and craniofacial disorders; hydrocephalus; epilepsy (seizures); headaches and migraines; tumors of the nervous system; spasticity; and spina bifida.

Please explore this site for additional information about our services and contact us with any questions or to request an appointment.
