Our team at Children's Memorial Hermann Hospital and UTHealth Medical School are world leaders in pediatric neurosciences.
Offering minimally invasive treatment for endoscopic brain surgery and comprehensive diagnosis, evaluation and treatment of a wide range of neurological disorders, we are at the forefront of advancing treatment for pediatric patients. Our multidisciplinary team approach combines the expertise of pediatric neurologists, epileptologists, neurosurgeons, neuroradiologists and neuropsychologists to ensure your child receives the best care available.
Our skilled medical professionals use the most sophisticated surgical, diagnostic and imaging equipment, such as diagnostic electroencephalography (EEG), video EEG monitoring, diagnostic electromyography (EMG) and diagnostic magnetoencephalography (MEG). We are pioneers in the use of MEG and belong to one of the few medical complexes in the world with two state-of-the-art MEG systems.
In addition, our
pediatric team has access to a state-of-the-art Epilepsy Monitoring Unit (EMU)
– the largest and most comprehensive of its kind in the region. Patients are
referred to the EMU of seizures whose cause is still unknown, medically
uncontrolled seizures, or if they are being evaluated for surgery. We have 5
dedicated pediatric beds, equipped for the needs of our pediatric population,
as well as pediatric nurses, a playroom and child life specialists for our
pediatric patients that require neurological care.
We provide individualized education and support services for families, from diagnosis through treatment and follow-up care for a broad range of neurological disorders.
