The primary focus of the section will be to teach medical students and physicians-in-training.

The staff provides care to children from birth (including premature birth) to 18 years of age. Some exceptions will be made for persons over 18, especially young adults, who have conditions not often managed by neurologists who focus on the care of adult patients.

The staff can manage a wide variety of diagnoses covering the complete range of neurologic care. These include:

  • Epilepsy
  • Neuromuscular Disease
  • Metabolic and Genetic Disorders
  • Headache syndromes
  • Cerebral Palsy
  • Congenital malformations of the nervous system
  • Spasticity
  • Neurocutaneous syndromes
  • Brain tumors
  • Movement Disorders

The staff delivers care at the University Hospital, the University Hospital Clinic system and other sites as deemed necessary.
