If your child has a problem involving the head, spine or nervous system, you may be referred to our pediatric neurosurgeon, Dr. Clark. You can be assured that your child will see someone with the most extensive training who can provide you with the widest range of treatment options. Dr. Clark and his team use the most advanced techniques and technology to provide expert surgical care for children seeking relief from tumors, epilepsy and other conditions. Everything our team does is focused on your child’s needs and comfort. We’ll work closely with your pediatrician to coordinate care. We also strive to offer the latest, minimally invasive procedures. When possible, we use CyberKnife®, a robotic alternative that requires no incisions and is designed to reduce pain and recovery time. We’re passionate about making the experience as comfortable and stress-less as possible for you and your child.
Meet our Pediatric Neurosurgeon
Expertise matters. Dr. Lawrence Clark has specialized training in both pediatric and adult neurosurgery to provide patients with a lifetime of care, from before birth through the teen years and into adulthood. In addition to four years of medical school, pediatric neurosurgeons undergo at least five more years of extensive residency training in neurological surgery before they can achieve board certification.
Dr. Clark’s goal is to minimize risks and maximize treatment and functionality. Because children cannot always say what’s bothering them, pediatric neurosurgeons know how to examine and treat a child in a way that makes them feel relaxed and cooperative. From diagnosis to pre-op and post-op, you’ll find Dr. Clark to be not only a top-rated surgeon, but a man of compassion, with a commitment of delivering the best outcomes to his patients.
