Top Medical Minds
The Neurology Service is home to some of the top medical minds in pediatric neurology. 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.
The center’s newly constructed home includes an epilepsy monitoring unit, patient rooms and a large gym where play is part of rehabilitation for kids. The new center allows kids to get all the care they need in one area of the hospital.
Patients are seen at our Dallas and Plano Campuses. If your child will be having tests (Radiology, Ultrasound, VCUG, Nuclear Medicine), report to the testing location at the Pavilion Imaging Center or Main Radiology Department on the 1st floor of Children's Health.
If your child will not be having tests, or if he or she already has had tests, report to the 4th Floor of Children’s Health℠ Ambulatory Care Pavillion (2350 Stemmons Frwy, Suite F4300).
