Texas Children’s Hospital Neurosurgery is a national and international destination for world class, innovative, high quality, and attentive neurologic care for children. We train the future leaders in pediatric neurosurgery, and we investigate neurologic conditions for which we have unique insight and access.
Dr. Weiner has become one of the country’s leading pediatric epilepsy surgeons, attracting patients from across the United States and abroad because of his innovative approach. Over the last 20 years, he has become a recognized national and international leader in the surgical treatment of childhood epilepsy, and has been a pioneer in advancing the care of children with Tuberous Sclerosis Complex, for which he is considered one of the world’s leading experts. His expertise also includes the operative treatment of childhood brain tumors, spasticity, hydrocephalus, congenital malformations, tethered cord, chiari malformation, craniosynostosis, and spina bifida.
