Pediatric Neurology

Pediatric Neurology
Pediatric neurologists treat children from birth into young adulthood and combine the special expertise in diagnosing and treating disorders of the nervous system (brain, spinal cord, muscles, nerves) with an understanding of medical disorders in childhood and the special needs of the child and family. In many cases, pediatric neurologists work as a team with other pediatric specialists to care for children who have more complex or serious medical issues.

The Division of Pediatric Neurology at The Children’s Hospital at Saint Peter’s University Hospital provides comprehensive evaluation and management for children with developmental disorders caused by brain disorders; epilepsy; migraine headaches; muscle and peripheral nerve disorders; Tourette syndrome; cerebral palsy; meningitis; Bell’s palsy; Dravet syndrome; encephalitis; Guillain-Barre syndrome; neurocutaneous disorder; traumatic brain injury; tics; brain tumors; post-traumatic brain disorder; Down syndrome; and the evaluation of sleep disorders, learning disabilities, and autism. Children will then be referred to the appropriate medical specialist.

Saint Peter’s pediatric neurologists see patients at The Children's Hospital at Saint Peter’s University Hospital in New Brunswick and at the Dr. Bipin Patel Pediatric Multispecialty Center at Hoboken University Medical Center, part of CarePoint Health in Hoboken.
