Our team of pediatric neurology professionals cares for children affected by disorders of the brain, spinal cord, peripheral nerves and muscles. We offer particular expertise in the diagnosis and treatment of epilepsy, rare and more common metabolic and genetic diseases, developmental disorders and neuromuscular conditions.

We offer the latest in diagnostic testing methods, but we also find that meeting with you and your child, and hearing directly from you, helps the diagnosis process significantly. We want to know every detail about your child’s condition – information that may not be obvious from your child’s medical record. In fact, we see many families whose children face difficult problems and have come to us after having already sought help elsewhere.

To offer the best care possible, we collaborate with other disciplines, such as neurosurgeons, neuroimaging specialists, child psychiatrists, geneticists and ophthalmologists.

Our patients and families benefit from coordinated treatment programs for epilepsy, autism and related disorders, spasticity, spina bifida, muscular dystrophy and spinal muscular atrophy. Our approach to these and other neurological disorders of children is supported by a robust laboratory and clinical research program, so we can offer patients with the most challenging conditions the opportunity to participate in trials of experimental therapies.

We also provide consultations to referring physicians, both here and abroad, whose patients may have a neurological component to their condition, and we work closely with pediatricians and primary care doctors in our local communities.
