If your child experiences a disorder of the brain, spine or nervous system, he or she may see a pediatric neurologist, a physician who has been specially trained to diagnose and treat these types of problems. At Bon Secours, we know that children aren't small adults. This is especially the case with neurological problems, which can be much different than adult neurological disorders. We provide complete neurological care, including a thorough evaluation, accurate diagnosis, effective treatment and follow-up.
Our pediatric neurologists treat many conditions, including:
- Brain tumors
- Seizure disorders and epilepsy
- Neuromuscular disorders
- Neonatal neurological disorders
- Movement disorders
- Multiple sclerosis
- Cerebral palsy
- Attention deficit disorders
We realize that children can't always communicate to tell us what's wrong. So we work hard to treat our patients and their families gently and compassionately, to help create an open, relaxed atmosphere.
Knowing your child has a neurological problem is stressful, and we do all we can to relieve that stress by treating you as a full partner in your child's care. That means explaining your child's condition and treatment options completely. It also means listening to you and taking the time to answer all your questions so you fully understand your child's condition and treatment options.
