The following describes neurologic conditions in children. For specific information regarding your child’s health and treatment options, please contact your Hurley physician or medical professional.
The best neurologic care for your child
The specialists in Hurley Medical Center’s Department of Pediatric Neurology evaluate, treat and manage neurologic disorders (problems of the nervous system) that are unique to children. Our highly-experienced pediatric neurologist is board certified in neurology and sleep disorders and in addition has special training in epilepsy and seizures. In fact, Hurley is the only hospital in the area with a full-time board certified pediatric neurologist who can evaluate electroencephalogram (EEG) test results to diagnose epileptic seizures. Hurley also has the region’s only Pediatric Intensive Care Unit (PICU).
Pediatric neurologic conditions treated:
- Seizures & epilepsy
- Developmental delay
The Hurley Difference: Taking the time to really care for a patient
These days it is very hard to find a doctor who is willing to meet with a patient and his/her family to explain a medical diagnosis, address their concerns, answer their questions, and counsel them about what to do next. But at Hurley, this is exactly what our Pediatric Neurologist and his staff do, every day. They truly care about their patients and never rush them through these important counseling sessions. Spending time with a patient and family–as much time as is necessary–and counseling them about a difficult condition such as new onset seizures or autism is as important here at Hurley as delivering the highest level of medical care. This patient- and family-centered approach to healthcaremakes families part of the medical team and includes them in the decision-making process.
Always at the cutting edge of medicine
At Hurley, staying up-to-date with the latest medical developments and treatments is vitally important. Our Pediatric Neurologist regularly attends national medical conferences and consults with colleagues in the field across the country so that he can consistently deliver the most advanced care to our patients. Also, if a patient might receive superior care for a specific condition at another medical facility, our staff will not hesitate to refer that patient there. At Hurley, our focus is always to do what is the very best for the patient.
