Pediatric Neurology

When a child has a neurologic condition such as a seizure, stroke or neuromuscular disorder, it can be scary.

Norton Children’s Hospital offers outstanding neurological condition diagnosis, treatment and care through pediatric neurology services provided by UofL Physicians – Child Neurology. Pediatric neurology treats conditions of the brain and spinal cord, and all muscles, nerves and blood vessels in these two systems. Our team is dedicated to caring for children with some of the most complex neurological system and nervous system development disorders. We ensure that your family is part of the process and has answers and support along the way.

Every child, from infant to young adult, receives customized care

We begin with a thorough neurological examination to assess your child’s muscle strength, movement, balance, speech, memory, nerve function in the head and neck, and other cognitive functions. We then develop a care plan to meet the unique needs of your child. With the most advanced diagnostic techniques available, our experienced team of neurologists board certified in child neurology, and access to the support and rehabilitation services of Norton Children’s Hospital, you can be confident your child is getting the care they deserve.
