Clinics and Programs


Pediatric Neurology Clinics
Our Pediatric Neurology faculty evaluate, consult, and work with patients and families dealing with illnesses, disorders, and conditions that involve the nervous system (brain, spinal cord, nerves, and muscles).

Pediatric Neurology Stroke Clinic

Epilepsy Program
Our Epilepsy program is the only one in Middle Tennessee with video-EEG monitoring for the evaluation of children for epilepsy surgery. The faculty is involved in national trials of new antiepileptic agents and has extensive experience in all forms of epilepsy management.

Pediatric Stroke Clinic
Strokes in children can have lifelong effects on muscle weakness and movement, speech, memory, problem solving, and behavior. Fortunately, early diagnosis, treatment, and follow-up care can minimize long-term problems.

Alternating Hemiplegia of Childhood
Our clinic is unique because your child is cared for by a team that includes nationally recognized experts in AHC. Doctors, patients and families are also supported by a wide range of specialists who understand the problems associated with hemiplegia episodes. Our commitment includes offering you access to leaders in researchers working to discover the causes of AHC and finding better treatments.

Neuromuscular Clinic
The Neuromuscular Clinic at Children's Hospital is sponsored by the Muscular Dystrophy Association of America (MDA). Our clinical staff of physician specialists, physical therapists, speech therapists, nutritionists, and equipment specialists, serve children with muscular dystrophy, spinal muscular atrophies, and other genetic disorders of nerve and muscle.

Neurovascular Center
The Pediatric Neurovascular Center is a multidisciplinary group of doctors and health care providers with a specific interest in conditions that affect blood vessels in the brain and spine in children. With an emphasis on comprehensive evaluation, treatment, and research, the center represents our commitment to further advancement in pediatric stroke care.

Tuberous Sclerosis Complex Clinic
The Tuberous Sclerosis Complex (TSC) Clinic was established at Vanderbilt in 2006 and is directed by Kevin Ess, M.D., Ph.D. We provide comprehensive care for pediatric patients with TSC. The clinic has many associated subspecialties including Neurology, Epilepsy, Neurosurgery, Neuropsychology, Dermatology, Cardiology, and Nephrology.

Motor Impairment Clinic (spasticity, hypertonia, motor delay)
The Motor Impairment Clinic evaluates and treats children with motor disorders, such as cerebral palsy, that cause tightness of limb joints. The purpose of the clinic is to determine if a child will benefit from treatment to address their muscle tone issues. The most common treatment includes oral medications, intramuscular Botox® injections, selective dorsal rhizotomy, intrathecal baclofen pump, deep brain stimulator, and serial casting. This Clinic is run through the Center for Child Development.
