THE ONLY BOARD CERTIFIED PEDIATRIC NEUROSURGEON IN NEBRASKA.
MD West ONE provides comprehensive pediatric neurosurgery services of both the brain and spine by the only Board Certified Pediatric Neurosurgeon in Nebraska. If your child has problems involving the head, spine, or nervous system, our team of pediatric neurosurgeons have the experience and expertise to help you.
Dr. Mark J. Puccioni has been named "Best in Pediatric Neurological Surgery" by the Best Doctors in America since 2010.
Neurosurgical problems seen by pediatric neurosurgeons are often quite different from those common for adults and therefore, special training in pediatric diseases as they relate to pediatric neurosurgical diseases is important. Children with nervous system problems can be present for life and frequently require ongoing care throughout childhood and adolescence.
The pediatric neurosurgeons at MD West ONE care for a range of nervous system problems and head and spinal deformities including head deformities, spine deformities, problems and injuries of the brain, nerves or spine, and spasticity (gait abnormalities).
