Pediatric neurosurgery in Northwest Florida
Studer Family Children’s Hospital is home to the region’s only pediatric neurosurgeon, Gus Perez, MD. Your child’s care team may also include pediatric neurologists, surgeons, neuro-oncologists, and other pediatric specialists.
Whenever possible, we use minimally invasive surgical techniques, which use small incisions and may help shorten your child’s recovery. After surgery, your child’s care team connects your family with supportive care, including pediatric rehabilitation. Find out more about neurosurgery at Studer Family Children’s Hospital.
