There are many neurological problems that affect children - some are present from birth, some are caused by accidents, and still others have unknown causes. The Children's Neurological Center provides a comprehensive range of both medical and surgical care for nearly all neurological disorders found in children.
The Children's Neurological Center is dedicated, specialized program focused completely on the compassionate treatment and care of children.
NEUROLOGICAL EXCELLENCE THAT'S CLOSE TO HOME
At one time you had to go to New York, Boston, or Washington, D.C., to get high-quality neurological care for your child.

Properly diagnosing your child's symptoms is crucial in providing effective treatment. One of the reasons your physician referred you to the Children's Neurological Center is that our comprehensive team of trained pediatric subspecialists has the tools and technological resources necessary to quickly and accurately render a diagnosis.
This can be an extremely stressful and unsettling time for your child and you. We understand and we do everything humanly possible to make this diagnostic stage quick and comfortable.
For example, for children with possible seizures, we use video EEG, which correlates behavior with the brain's electrical activity, giving us a much quicker, more accurate diagnosis than ever before.
For children with suspected or confirmed brain tumors, we use the latest minimally invasive techniques to identify tumors with pinpoint accuracy and few side effects.
