Pediatric Neurosurgery


Learning that your child has been diagnosed with a neurological condition that requires surgery can be very difficult for families. At Albany Med, we offer the only pediatric neurosurgery capability within the region. We have a state-of-the-art pediatric intensive care unit, general pediatric ward and neonatal intensive care unit for premature infants to young adults with a wide range of neurological conditions.  

Our team includes neurosurgeons, neurologists and other clinicians who specifically specialize in the evaluation and treatment of children with a wide range of neurosurgical disorders.

Dr. Matthew Adamo, the region’s only fellowship trained pediatric neurosurgeon, discusses the unique aspects of the program at Albany Med, focusing on his expertise and how collaboration with pediatricians in other disciplines provides the best outcomes for patients and their families.
