Pediatric Neurology

Expert care and specialized treatments for children with any neurologic condition.

When a child faces a serious neurologic condition, parents can confidently turn to the Neurosciences Center at Children’s Health℠. Here, parents find hope and expert care from one of the nation’s top Neurology and Neurosurgery programs ranked by U.S. News and World Report. We place particular emphasis on muscular, physiologic and behavioral disorders and also offer the only pediatric epilepsy program in the country to be certified by The Joint Commission.

The Neurology program at Children’s Health is home to some of the top medical minds in pediatric neurology.

For more than 100 years, Children’s Health℠ has been dedicated to making life better for children afflicted with complex conditions that require optimal care. Collaborative work with UT Southwestern helps bring cutting-edge research in pediatric neurology from the lab to the bedside and allows patients to transition from pediatric to adult care. With a variety of subspecialists under one roof, neurology patients needing access to other areas of care, such as hematology, neuro-oncology and psychiatry, have it at their fingertips.

Everyone did such a great job keeping us informed and involved in Kade’s care. They made sure we understood what was going on and answered all of our questions.
