From the moment of first diagnosis, we work with patients and families to help every child reach their full potential. Our neurology team is uniquely positioned to combine a family-based approach to care with leading-edge diagnostic tools, treatments, and research.
Children’s Hospital is home to renowned experts in specialized areas of pediatric neurology including childhood epilepsy, stroke, movement disorders, neuromuscular disorders, neurogenetics, sleep disorders, headaches, neonatal neurology, neuro-intensive care, neuro-ophthalmological disorders, neurodevelopmental disorders, and cerebral palsy.
We are also the region's leading provider of specialized neurodiagnostic testing in children, including electroencephalography (EEG), electromyography (EMG) and nerve conduction studies, and neuroimaging testing (MRI, CT, PET scan, functional MRI, SPECT). Treatment options for spasticity include medications, Botulinum toxin (Botox®) injections, and intrathecal baclofen pumps.
