We share outcomes with you
Choosing where to bring your child for neurosurgery is a major decision. You need all the information you can get. And you want it in a clear, straightforward form that helps you make the right choice for your family.
That’s why we share our outcomes with you. In medicine, “outcomes” measure the end results of a treatment. They’re an objective way of gauging how good a hospital is at treating your child’s condition. As you’ll see, the neurosurgery outcomes at Children’s Hospitals and Clinics of Minnesota are outstanding.
The categories are ones chosen by the Institute of Medicine as good measures of health care quality. See how Children’s ranks on six quality of care measures. Learn more.
Finding new ways to improve comfort and care
At Children’s, we focus on research and innovations that make a difference at the bedside. From improving day-to-day quality of life for children and teens, to developing new pain management approaches and adopting cutting-edge technologies, our research is completely kid- and family-focused.
Children’s is engaged in many types of research, including investigator-initiated studies (led by a Children’s clinician), as well as externally sponsored multicenter trials, observational studies and registries.
