A child's neurological system includes the brain and nervous system. It's the command center that connects the body's different parts to one another and allows them to work together properly.
When there are problems in the neurological system, specialists from our pediatric neuroscience team will work with your primary care team to diagnose and treat the problem with the most advanced, state-of-the-art care available.
Since 1967, the child neurologists at UK HealthCare have been serving the families of Eastern and Central Kentucky through direct patient care and research. We bring a unique combination of neuroscience and pediatric expertise to our patients. In Lexington, we see outpatients along with the other neurologists in the Kentucky Clinic. For our inpatients we utilize the Kentucky Children's Hospital, where we have two dedicated video/EEG rooms.
If your child requires inpatient or observation monitoring or procedures, they will receive care at our facilities at UK Albert B. Chandler Hospital or Kentucky Children's Hospital. There we can utilize video EEG monitoring, MR imaging and other tests 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). The clinics are held in the following locations:
Funding is available to help pay for a child's medicines, tests and visits. We also conduct a Commission child neurology clinic for Central Kentucky children in Lexington.
