Abstract

Pediatric neurosurgery is rapidly evolving as new advances in technology are being developed and applied to this specialty. Many of these developments are intended to enhance clinical care and improve surgical outcomes. Through less invasive approaches often employing image guidance, it is possible to reduce neurological morbidity which can result in shorter lengths of stay, reduced medical costs, and increased patient satisfaction.
