  • Brain and Spinal Cord Tumor Program: We have one of the largest teams of dedicated pediatric neurosurgeons in the country. With our advanced surgical technology, we treat more than 100 pediatric brain tumor patients each year.
  • Concussion Program: Our goal is to educate the community about the seriousness of concussions and the importance of a gradual return to school and activities. Our concussion materials are endorsed by the Georgia Department of Public Health.
  • Epilepsy Center: Our Epilepsy Center is a Level 4 pediatric epilepsy center according to the National Association of Epilepsy Centers (NAEC)—their highest level of designation. Each year, the specially trained staff treats hundreds of patients—nearly 1,000 epilepsy discharges, more than double the national average. We provide neurodiagnostic monitoring, clinical trials, and both surgical and nonsurgical treatment options. We offer the latest in robotic neurosurgery technology. The ROSA robotic surgical assistant has been added to our existing stereoelectroencephalography (SEEG) procedure to give us an integrated platform for surgical planning. We also offer laser ablation surgery using Visualase, an advanced, minimally invasive, MRI-guided laser ablation technology used to treat patients with epilepsy. Using epilepsy research, new techniques, advanced technology and diagnostic testing capabilities, we have helped our patients become free of disabling seizures after surgery.
  • Neurocritical Care Program: Children’s has the only pediatric Level I and Level II trauma centers in the state. Our team of specialists work together to care for children with traumatic brain injuries, seizures and brain tumors.
  • Neuro Spine Care: Our team offers specialized care for children and teens with complex neurological spine disorders. From congenital conditions to spine trauma, the team takes a multidisciplinary approach, combining expertise from neurosurgeons, neurologists, neuroradiologists, neuropsychologists and orthopaedic surgeons.
  • Multispecialty clinics: Our team offers multispecialty clinics for patients who need to see several specialists. These clinics let patients see several doctors in one visit.

Meet the Team

We have one of the largest pediatric neurosurgery teams in the country. Our neurosurgeons are board-eligible in neurosurgery and pediatrics, which means they completed additional training in order to care for pediatric patients. We are actively involved in research that we hope will lead to cures for pediatric diseases and highly focused on the needs of children with diseases of the spine, brain and nervous system. Our Neurosurgery Program is led by our Practice Director, William Boydston, MD, PhD.
