Pediatric Neurosurgical Specialists provides state-of-the-art pediatric neurosurgery to the Dallas/Fort Worth area. Our goal is to combine technical expertise with a personal approach that is often lacking in modern medicine today.
We specialize in chiari and vascular malformations, brain tumors, spinal instrumentations and craniofacial disorders. Dr. Sacco has been named one of D Magazine's Best Doctors for 2016. Our team of caregivers understands the importance of communication and individualized care and will work with you and your family to ensure the best course of action is determined. We treat every patient as if they were a member of our own family.
Operating as usual
Our surgeons may be superhero's year round but today they had a little help from Super Girl, Bat Girl & Robin! Pediatric Neurosurgical Specialists wishes everyone a safe, fun and Happy Halloween.
There’s a certain kind of joy watching your little ones play with their holiday toys, but remember to make sure the toys are safe and free of potential hazards ahead of time. Toy-related injuries accounted for more than 200,000 visits to U.S. emergency rooms in 2018. Try to:
-Look for toys with a solid, sturdy build and avoid toys that can break, get crushed or pulled apart easily.
-Check the label for fire hazards and to ensure the toy has passed a safety inspection.
(Tip: Look for the letters "ASTM" which means it has met the American Society for Testing and Materials standards.)
And please avoid:
-Toys with small parts and sharp edges
-Electric toys with heating elements
-Guns or other toys that shoot flying objects
-Crayons and markers not clearly labeled "nontoxic"
-Toys with ropes and cords
Happy Halloween from all of us to you.
Please have a safe and social distanced weekend.
Happy Fourth of July! No matter how you plan to celebrate today, please stay safe and celebrate responsibly.

Did you know September is Childhood Cancer Awareness month?
*One in 285 children in the U.S. will be diagnosed with cancer by the time they are 20 years old.
*Childhood cancer is the leading cause of death by disease in children under the age of 19 in the U.S.
*Childhood cancer research is vastly and consistently underfunded. It only receives ONLY 4% of the annual budget from the National Cancer Institute.
Join us by wearing GOLD this month to support Pediatric Cancer, our patients and their families.
We are so happy our superhero is doing better!
Parker got the most amazing gift today from the office of his phenomenal neurosurgeon, Dr. David Sacco! Dr. Sacco's office is staffed with a wonderful group of women who truly care about the patients and their families, just like the doctor they work for!
I got a phone call this morning that they had seen that Parker was inpatient and wanted to make sure he had some fun things to play with. What a lucky kid. ❤️
And more good news...NO fever overnight and his body is doing really well with one of the antibiotics. So well, that we can drop the second one. Fingers crossed we'll be heading home by Saturday.
