About Our Pediatric Epilepsy & Child Neurology Care Center

When one thinks of neurological conditions in children, epilepsy quickly comes to mind. That's probably because there are more than 2.5 million Americans living with epilepsy today.    

The truth is there are a number of neurological conditions which impact children – everything from headache and migraine disorders through movement disorders. In each instance, it's vital that a partnership is formed with your neurologist to help you and your child learn to manage the condition.  

That's where we come in. Our specialists work closely with families to help them improve the quality of life for their child and manage their neurological condition. We also provide a specialty program for children with epilepsy through our Epilepsy Center. The Center provides comprehensive evaluations and testing, with such technologies as video electroencephalogram (EEG).    

Neurosurgery
While rare, children can be affected by accidents and conditions that require brain surgery. Pediatric neurosurgery is a sub-specialty that requires fellowship training after residency and medical school to specialize in the care of children. Working with pediatric neurologists, radiologists, plastic surgeons, oncologists, and trauma surgeons & experts in a variety of programs, our pediatric neurosurgery program is staffed by leading experts in the field.


Our staff specialists are available to consult on a variety of neurological problems, such as:  

  • Developmental delays
