Neurology

Boy looking through fingers

If your child has problems involving the nervous system such as seizures, delayed speech, weakness or headaches we can help.

We provide comprehensive diagnostic and therapeutic services to infants and children with acute and chronic neurological and developmental disabilities. Services for both inpatient and outpatient care are available.

Child neurologists combine the special expertise in diagnosing and treating disorders of the nervous system with an understanding of medical disorders in childhood and the special needs of the child and his or her family and environment.

These are chronic conditions that require ongoing care and close follow-up throughout childhood and adolescence.

Child neurologists often diagnose, treat, and manage the following conditions:

  • Seizure disorders, including seizures in newborns, febrile convulsions, and epilepsy
  • Medical aspects of head injuries and brain tumors
  • Weakness, including cerebral palsy, muscular dystrophy, and nerve-muscle disorders
  • Headaches, including migraines
  • Behavioral disorder, including attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), school failure, autism, and sleep problems
  • Developmental disorder, including delayed speech, motor milestones, and coordination issues
  • Mental Retardation
  • Hydrocephalus
