Pediatric neurosurgery is a surgical treatment of diseases of the nervous system, brain and spinal cord in children. The main difficulty in the work of a pediatric neurosurgeon is the immaturity of the child's body. Improper treatment can affect the health of the child in the future. Therefore, it is necessary that the operation be justified, accurately planned and carried out in a gentle manner.

Verified review. The patient was treated of spina bifida (cleft spine) in Sant Joan de Déu – Barcelona Children’s Hospital

Good day to all! Finally we got our hands on writing about the treatment of our child at the Sant Joan de Deu Barselona hospital. I would like to say once again a huge thank you to Bookimed for the help in choosing a clinic. This is not just a hospital, THIS IS A SUPER HOSPITAL !!! To be honest, they did not even expect that medicine could be of such a high level. About the staff separately: from nurses to professors of the clinic, damn well, all simple, normal, kind people. I have never seen such attention to a child, literally everything is scheduled by the minute, everyone is smiling, joking. In general, the little one did not understand that he had undergone a complex operation on the spinal cord. After the operation and coming out of complex anesthesia, the child never even cried and did not experience any pain (except for changing the dressing, removing the adhesive plaster). The hospital itself is huge, EVERYTHING FOR CHILDREN, everything is in pictures, slides, balls, a dinosaur farm. Everything has been done so that the children would not be afraid of doctors, etc. And a special BIG THANKS to our neurosurgeon Jose Hinojosa Mena-Bernal with a capital letter. This is a man with golden hands and a kind heart (just works wonders)! The child began to walk on his own 5 days after the operation. Thanks to Mikki, the resuscitator, a young guy who looked after the little one after the operation, like his son. And also the hospital's translator, Mikhail, who, together with us, empathized with everything that happened, thanks to nurse Svetlana who helped in all matters related to caring for the little one, including as an interpreter, and just a good kind woman. Thanks to our curator of the hospital for organizing the stay in the clinic, cheerful, always cheerful with a smile on her face Valeria, deciding all issues of hospitalization and treatment. MANY THANKS TO ALL HONEY STAFF SANT JOAN DE DEU. You are best !!! CONTINUE SAVING THE CHILDREN AND MORE, and we, in turn, promise not to get sick anymore !! Respectfully, V.V. Solomatin Добрый день всем! Наконец добрались руки написать о лечении нашего ребенка в госпитале Sant Joan de Deu Barselona. Хочется еще раз сказать огромное спасибо Bookimed за помощь в выборе клиники. Это не просто госпиталь ,ЭТО СУПЕР ГОСПИТАЛЬ!!! Честно говоря даже не ожидали, что медицина может быть такого высокого уровня. Про персонал отдельно: начиная от медсестёр и до профессоров клиники, блин ну все простые нормальные добрые люди.Такого внимания к ребенку я еще не видел ,буквально все расписано по минутам, все улыбаются, шутят. В общем малой так и не понял, что ему сделали сложнейшую операцию на спинном мозге. Ребенок после операции и выхода из сложного наркоза, даже ни разу не плакал и не испытывал никаких болевых ощущений (за исключением смены повязки, снятия лейкопластыря). Сам госпиталь огромный, ВСЕ ДЛЯ ДЕТЕЙ, все в рисунках ,горки, шарики, ферма диназавров. Сделанно все так что бы детки не боялись врачей и т.д. Ну и отдельное ОГРОМНОЕ СПАСИБО нашему с большой буквы Нейрохирургу Jose Hinojosa Mena-Bernal. Это человек с золотыми руками и добрым сердцем (просто творит чудеса)! Ребенок через 5 дней после операции начал ходить самостоятельно.
Спасибо Реаниматологу Mikki, молодой парень, который ухаживал после операции за мелким, как за своим сыном . А так же переводчику госпиталя Михаилу, который вместе с нами сопереживал все что происходило, спасибо медсестре Светлане которая помогала во всех вопросах связанных по уходу за малым и в том числе как переводчик, да и просто хорошая добрая женщина. Спасибо нашему куратору госпиталя за организацию нахождения в клинике, жизнерадостная, всегда веселая с улыбкой на лице Валерия, решающая все вопросы госпитализации и лечения. ОГРОМНОЕ СПАСИБО ВСЕМУ МЕД ПЕРСОНАЛУ SANT JOAN DE DEU . Вы ЛУЧШИЕ !!! ПРОДОЛЖАЙТЕ СПАСАТЬ ДЕТОК И ДАЛЬШЕ, а мы в свою очередь обещаем больше не болеть!! С уважение Соломатин В.В.

FAQ about Pediatric Neurosurgery

Diseases treated by pediatric neurosurgeons

Pediatric neurosurgeons treat brain tumors, congenital anomalies of the skull and spine, and injuries.

The most common diseases in children:

  • hydrocephalus (dropsy of the brain) - accumulation of cerebrospinal fluid in the brain;
  • spina bifida (spina bifida) - a congenital pathology of the development of the spinal cord;
  • Arnold-Chiari anomaly - a congenital anomaly in the development of the brain, in which part of the cerebellum descends to the upper sections of the spinal cord;
  • craniosynostosis - premature fusion of the sutures of the skull;
  • encephalocele - a type of craniocerebral hernia;
  • cysts in the brain;
  • medulloblastoma - a malignant tumor that affects the cerebellum;
  • craniopharyngioma - a benign brain tumor;
  • ependymoma - a tumor of the posterior cranial fossa, which can metastasize;
  • astrocytoma, glioblastoma - malignant neoplasms of the brain, brain stem;
  • epilepsy resistant to drug treatment.

The main method of treatment in pediatric neurosurgery is surgery on the brain or spinal cord.

Children are often prescribed sparing operations through a small hole in the skull:

  • removal of brain tumors;
  • shunting for hydrocephalus is an operation in which an additional pathway for the outflow of cerebrospinal fluid is created.

Open surgeries are assigned to a child for:

  • removal of brain formations of large size or fuzzy shape;
  • correction of defects of the spine or bones of the skull;
  • removal of a part of a vertebra in case of Arnold-Chiari anomaly (laminectomy);
  • epilepsy surgery.

The decision on the method of treatment is made by the neurosurgeon after a comprehensive diagnosis.

Peculiarities of diagnostics in pediatric neurosurgery

The main examination in pediatric neurosurgery is magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). It is assigned for accurate planning of the operation. This is a safe non-invasive diagnostic without the use of x-rays. MRI creates a detailed image of the brain, allows the neurosurgeon to detect the disease and choose the type of surgical intervention.

During an MRI, children are given a sedative. Such seeding is necessary so that the child remains calm and does not move during the procedure, otherwise the image will be blurry.

мрт головного мозга ребенку

Depending on the disease, the child is prescribed:

  • consultation with a neurologist;
  • consultation with an ophthalmologist;
  • consultation with an otorhinolaryngologist;
  • blood test (general, biochemical, oncomarkers);
  • electroencephalography (EEG);
  • radiography;
  • lumbar puncture - examination of the cerebrospinal fluid;
  • biopsy.

Peculiarities of treatment in pediatric neurosurgery centers abroad

Spain

The leading center for pediatric neurosurgery in Spain is the Teknon Clinic.

A feature of the neurosurgical department of the center is the robotic neuronavigation system Renishaw Neuromate. It forms an image of the brain in several projections and tracks the location of surgical instruments during the operation. This technology reduces the risk of damage to healthy areas of the brain during surgery.

Brain surgeries for children and adults are performed by the best neurosurgeon in Europe, Dr. Bartolome Oliver. He has been engaged in surgical treatment of pathologies of the central and peripheral nervous system for 36 years. The doctor performs 200 operations annually.

Israel

At the Ichilov Medical Center, one of the world's best specialists, Shlomo Konstantini, consults. The professor heads the Department of Pediatric Neurosurgery at the Dana Dweck Clinic. He has been operating on small patients for over 30 years. The professor performs sparing operations (method of neuroendoscopy).

Turkey

In the Liv Hospital clinic, the statistics of successful operations is 91%. This is the best indicator in Turkey (the national average is 81%). The leading experts are professors Talat Kiris and Mustafa Kemal Hamamdzhioglu. They perform over 250 brain and spinal cord surgeries annually.

Prices for treatment in pediatric neurosurgery clinics

The cost of pediatric neurosurgical operations abroad depends on the type of pathology, its complexity and stage of development.

What to look for when choosing a clinic?

What to consider when choosing a clinic for treatment?

  • specialization of the medical institution;
  • specialization of a pediatric neurosurgeon;
  • qualifications and experience of a neurosurgeon;
  • availability of modern equipment in the clinic (neuronavigation systems);
  • possibility of preliminary consultation;
  • clinic pricing policy.

Answers to frequently asked questions about pediatric neurosurgery

Can a child with a brain tumor fly?

Most brain tumors are not a contraindication for flying. But before traveling, you should consult a doctor. He knows the characteristics of the disease and the risks associated with it.

Why is it important to choose a clinic with neuronavigation and neuromonitoring?

Intraoperative neuromonitoring is a system that detects and helps prevent damage to brain structures during surgery. It creates an interactive map of brain regions that are responsible for certain bodily functions. In combination with neuronavigation, it increases the success of the operation. The more accurately the equipment works, the more the surgeon will remove the formation or pathological part of the brain and not damage healthy tissues.

How to organize treatment for a child?

To go abroad for treatment, leave a request on the Bookimed website. You will be contacted by a coordinating doctor who will select the best specialized clinic.

For a preliminary consultation with a pediatric neurosurgeon, it is necessary to provide the results of the tests, an MRI scan, and the child's medical records. If necessary, the examination can be carried out already in the clinic.

You receive a treatment program and its cost. If the program is suitable, the coordinating doctor helps arrange the trip. He stays in touch during treatment and after returning home.
