The Division of Child Neurology at Stanford

Child Neurology

The Child Neurology Division is devoted to research and treatment of neurological diseases that may strike children from the neonatal period through late adolescence. Physicians within the division study and treat 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 is currently in an explosive growth phase, adding many new faculty and trainees.

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