Meet the Norton Children’s Neuroscience Institute Team

When it comes to your child’s nervous system, brain or spine, every parent wants to know they have a full team of board-certified pediatric neurosurgery and child neurology specialists. In the field of neurosciences, having a multidisciplinary team that includes neurologists, neurosurgeons, plastic surgeons and rehabilitation therapists allows us to care for children from diagnosis to getting them back to being a kid again. Meet the team at Norton Children’s Neuroscience Institute, affiliated with the UofL School of Medicine.
