The Neonatal Intensive Care Units (NICUs) at Riley Hospital for Children and IU Health Methodist Hospital are putting visitor restrictions in place starting Monday, Nov. 18th. Only visits by parents plus four designated adults identified by the parents will be allowed on the NICU floor.
Siblings and children under 18 will not be permitted. These restrictions minimize risk of infection to patients already at risk and will be in place through spring 2020.
Our pediatric neurosurgery team provides new patient consultations, as well as post-operative visits in the Fort Wayne office. In most cases, a patient’s initial exam can be completed locally in Fort Wayne, with only the more complex neurosurgical disorders requiring an exam at Riley Hospital for Children at IU Health in Indianapolis. Telemedicine and teleradiology capabilities will also link our providers in Fort Wayne to colleagues in Indianapolis to deliver the most expert care close to home. The pediatric specialists at the Fort Wayne office are equipped to handle many neurosurgical conditions. Some of the conditions treated include brain and spinal tumors, spine deformities, spina bifida, scoliosis and concussions.
We provide multispecialty care for a number of conditions. Below are links to our related departments.
