The Division of Neurosurgery at Children’s Mercy Kansas City is seeking a fellowship-trained BC/BE pediatric neurosurgeon to join our four-surgeon group in the summer or fall of 2022. We have realized tremendous clinical growth along with evolving opportunities. Our strategic plan includes expanding to five full time faculty over the next two years. Call coverage will be 1:4. Neurosurgical residents from the University of Kansas program provide primary call coverage. A robust and talented team of nurse practitioners contributes to inpatient and outpatient care. The operating room is equipped with ZEISS and Leica surgical microscopes, MINOP endoscopes, BrainLab and Stealth guidance systems, O-Arm, LITT, and ROSA.
The preferred candidate must be competent in the full breadth of pediatric neurosurgical procedures, including spinal instrumentation needed for acute operative stabilization. Our division provides pediatric neurosurgical care from fetal intervention for spina bifida, to all aspects of pediatric neurosurgery at our main campus, clinics and outpatient surgery at our satellite campuses in the state of Kansas, consultative and operative intervention at the University of Kansas Medical Center, and Gamma Knife Radiosurgery off campus. Further sub-specialization while not imperative, will be encouraged in-line with candidate competencies, desires, and division needs. Imperative expectations are the willingness to: participate in out-reach clinics, contribute to and lead investigative and quality improvement projects, strengthen or develop clinical programs, participate in division and multidisciplinary conferences, be dedicated to team success over individual prowess, and be dedicated to resident teaching and training. Imperative competencies are a track record of safe, effective, and efficient technical skills, clinical competencies of outpatient and inpatient management, and outstanding interpersonal skills.
