The Division of Pediatric Neurology is based at Seattle Children's Hospital (SCH) and provides comprehensive, compassionate family-centered care of pediatric patients with a variety of neurologic, neuromuscular, and neurodevelopmental disorders. Infants, children, and adolescents with epilepsy, movement disorders, cerebral palsy, developmental delay, muscular dystophy, headache, and other conditions are evaluated by faculty pediatric neurologists, all of whom are certified by the American Board of Psychiatry and Neurology. Rounding our our team are several dedicated nurse practitioners, nurses, neuropsychologists, social workers, electrodiagnostic technologists and dieticians.

The Division of Pediatric Neurology operates regular clinics at SCH and also participates in outreach programs located at a variety of sites in Washington, Alaska and Montana. Faculty members also provide in-patient neurologic consultation for patients admitted to all units at SCH and to the Intensive Care Nursery at the University of Washington Medical Center.

The Division of Pediatric Neurology admits children to SCH for the evaluation of complex neurologic disorders and administers an in-patient video-EEG telemetry unit where children are admitted for intensive monitoring of epilepsy and other paroxysmal disorders. The Division of Pediatric Neurology has epilepsy surgery, ketogenic diet and vagus nerve stimulator programs for the treatment of children with complex epileptic conditions.
