The Division of Child Neurology at Stanford

Our Mission: To be a premier center for child neurology and neuroscience, serving quaternary care and community needs, via novel interdisciplinary collaborations

Child Neurology

The Child Neurology Division is devoted to the diagnosis, treatment, and research of neurological diseases that may strike children from the neonatal period through late adolescence. Physicians within the Division study and manage a wide variety of disorders, from brain tumors and epilepsy to muscular dystrophy and stroke.  

Given the broad clinical purview of child neurology, the Division is home to a large, interdisciplinary team of physicians, nurses, researchers, and clinical trainees from many specialties. The Division continues to be in an explosive growth phase, adding many new faculty and trainees.

Patients are seen at the Lucile Packard Children’s Hospital, which provides quality, comprehensive neurological evaluation and care.

US News & World Report has ranked Child Neurology at Lucile Packard Children's Hospital at Stanford as the very best in the West and 8th overall in the nation.
