A pediatric neurologist treats children with conditions that affect the nervous system, which includes the brain, nerves, and spinal cord. The nervous system controls our movement, including the brain’s response to internal and external messages in the environment that impact the network of cells and tissue in our bodies.
Children with neurological conditions have special needs because their brains and nervous systems are actively growing. Pediatric neurologists at Baylor Scott & White McLane Children's are trained to identify and treat children, from newborns to teenagers. Our specialists may work with the pediatric neurosurgical team, and in some cases, rehabilitation experts if your child’s health requires it.
