About

Neurosurgeon

Meyer Children’s Hospital

After specialization in Neurosurgery at the University of Brescia (Italy), Dr. Mirko Scagnet continued his training as a pediatric neurosurgeon at the Children Hospital of Philadelphia, University of Pittsburgh Medical Center (UPMC), Boston Children's Hospital, The Hospital for Sick Children (Toronto, Canada), Universitè Paris Diderot (Paris, France), & Hopital Timone Enfants (Marseille, France).

Dr. Scagnet deals with endoscopic endonasal surgery of the skull base (pituitary adenomas, craniopharyngiomas, chordomas of the clivus) with use of 3D endoscope, neuroncology for the treatment of pediatric brain tumors with interventions integrated with ultrasound and neuronavigation, treatment of craniostenosis with minimally invasive techniques, endoscopic treatment of hydrocephalus, and treatment of vertebral and cranial malformations.

It is my privilege to partner with The Children’s Brain Tumor Network (CBTN), which is at the forefront of pediatric genetic research.
