Neurology - Pediatric

Neurologist talks with patent's mother and young patient while holding human brain model

A child's neurological system includes the brain and nervous system. It's the command center that connects the body's different parts to each and allows them to work together properly. When there are problems in the neurological system, specialists from our pediatric neurology team will work with your primary care team to diagnose and treat the problem with the most advanced, state-of-the-art care available.

Our specialists in pediatric neurology treat children with a variety of neurological disorders including:

  • Epilepsy
  • Development disorders
  • Neuromuscular disorders
  • Cerebral palsy
  • Seizures
  • Headaches
  • Tics
  • Speech dysfunction (congenital aphasia)
  • Muscle weakness (myopathy)

If your child requires inpatient or observation monitoring or procedures, they will receive care at our facilities in UK Albert B. Chandler Hospital or Kentucky Children's Hospital. There we use MRI, CT and video EEG monitoring to diagnose your child and determine treatment. Our specialists also visit the Appalachian counties of Eastern Kentucky where clinics are held in conjunction with the Commission for Children with Special Health Care Needs (CCSHCN) to make sure every child with a neurological disorder receives the treatment they need.
