Pediatric Neurology FAQs

What is pediatric neurology?

Pediatric neurology is a specialized branch of medicine that diagnoses and treats neurological disorders in children. These conditions include issues related to the brain, spinal cord, nerves, and muscles.

Pediatric neurologists are trained to understand how these conditions affect children differently than adults, offering more accurate diagnoses and effective treatments.

How is a pediatric neurology evaluation performed?

A pediatric neurology evaluation typically involves a detailed medical history, a physical examination, and various diagnostic tests. These may include neurological imaging like MRI or CT scans, electroencephalograms (EEG) for studying brain activity, and other specialized tests to assess nerve and muscle function. The goal is to gain a thorough understanding of the child’s neurological health and pinpoint any specific issues.

How do I prepare for my child’s first visit to a pediatric neurologist?

To prepare for your child’s first visit to a pediatric neurologist, you should:

  • Gather all medical records, including any tests or evaluations previously performed.
  • List all medications and dosages your child is currently taking.
  • Write down any symptoms your child has been experiencing and how long they’ve been present.
  • Be prepared to discuss your family’s medical history, particularly any neurological disorders.
  • Bring a list of questions to ensure all your concerns are addressed during the visit.
