A Team Approach to Hope and Healing
Neurological conditions in children can be complex and require a team of caregivers, each bringing specialized expertise. Our board-certified neurologists and neurosurgeons work together on every aspect of a child’s care, from thorough diagnostics to the latest treatments and procedures available. They collaborate with nurses and nurse practitioners, social workers, neuropsychologists, rehabilitation therapists, dietitians, psychiatrists, pharmacists, speech and occupational therapists, and child life specialists to develop a unique treatment plan.
