Pediatric Neurology Clinic

 

Our Pediatric Neurology faculty offer consultation services for patients and families dealing with illnesses, disorders, and conditions involving the nervous system (brain, spinal cord, nerves, and muscles). The clinic and its associated diagnostic laboratories are located on the 9th floor of Doctors' Office Tower at Children's Hospital.

Diagnostic tests available in the clinic include lumbar puncture, electroencephalography (EEG), and electromyography (EMG). The clinic schedules diagnostic imaging of the brain, such as magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and computerized tomography (CT), with the Department of Radiology.

All patients must be referred by their primary care physician. Our division then works with you and your family, taking into account your child's individual needs and limitations, to offer the latest treatment options available for neurological conditions and disorders.

Conditions we treat include

  • Cerebral palsy
  • Developmental delay or regression
  • Disorders of gait and movement
  • Epileptic seizures
  • Migraines
  • Poor muscle tone
  • Strokes
  • Tics and Tourette syndrome
  • Tremor
  • Weakness of one or more limbs
