Pediatric neurology deals with diseases and disorders that can affect a child's nervous system. This includes the brain, the spinal cord and all associated blood vessels, muscles and nerves.
Recognized leaders in neurosurgery, our cutting-edge technology and treatment techniques have had a major impact on more positive outcomes for children, teens and young adults with brain and nervous system conditions.
Cook Children's Neuro-Oncology Program includes oncology, neurosurgery, neurology, radiation oncology, diagnostic imaging, neuropsychology, social services, nursing and rehabilitation. All to provide the most complete care for your child.
The pediatric neuropsychologist uses formal standardized tests of abilities, such as memory and language skills, to assess brain functioning. He or she interprets the results based on what is expected at the child's age level and makes recommendations for optimal care.
Cook Children's Rehab Care Unit (RCU) is a family-centered area where children get treatment for head injuries and neurological illnesses. The RCU uses multiple people that provide services including therapies, medical care, support and education.
The Neurodiagnostics Center is an important part of our neurosciences program. Advanced neurological technologies are available to help our specialists diagnose your child's condition and prepare a plan of care.
