Patient-centered program for infants, children, adolescents, and young adults
When one thinks of neurological conditions in children, epilepsy quickly comes to mind. That’s probably because there are more than 2.5 million Americans living with epilepsy today.
The truth is there are a number of neurological conditions which impact children – everything from headache and migraine disorders through movement disorders. In each instance, it’s vital that a partnership is formed with your neurologist to help you and your child learn to manage the condition. That’s where we come in.

What if your doctor recommends surgery?
While rare, children can be affected by accidents and conditions that require brain surgery. Pediatric neurosurgery is a sub-specialty that requires fellowship training after residency and medical school to specialize in the care of children.
