Our team can review the results of past MRIs and CTs as part of your child’s care plan and for further treatment recommendations. At this time, we are unable to perform nerve conduction studies (NCS) or electromyography (EMG).

Our Providers

Our team includes fellowship-trained neurology, neuro-critical care and neurosurgery specialists (fellowship training is additional advanced training in a specific field of study). Because neurological conditions can affect every area of the body, we provide team-based care and treatment plans to help patients recover. This team can also provide extra support for your child’s health needs, including behavioral health services.
