What is pediatric neurology?
Pediatric neurology is a medical specialty serving children with neurological disorders. Child neurologists combine expertise in neurology and pediatrics to diagnose and treat disorders of the brain and spinal cord. Pediatric neurologists are trained to recognize neurological disorders in childhood and to attend to the special needs of the child and his or her family. At Bon Secours, we understand that children and their families require special care.
