More than 5,000 neurosurgical procedures carried out at Temple Street over past decade.
Babies as young as two months are receiving brain surgery at the State’s only neurosurgery unit for young children, which marks its 10th anniversary on Friday.
More than 5,000 neurosurgical procedures have been carried out over the past decade at Temple Street hospital’s department of paediatric neurosurgery in Dublin.
Many of the unit’s patients have congenital conditions, while about 50 young children a year are treated for brain tumours. One-third are emergency cases.
