When Your Child Needs Expert Neurological Care – It’s Nearby
When your child has a problem related to the nervous system, it can affect the way his or her brain or body works. It’s comforting to know specialists can evaluate, diagnose, and treat your child’s neurological problem to help your child recover or improve.
Our team of board certified pediatric neurologists, pediatric nurse practitioners, pediatric neurology nurses, and other experts work together to diagnose your child’s neurological condition and provide the best possible care.
We Evaluate & Treat a Wide Range of Neurological Conditions
Through physician assessment, electroencephalography (EEG), and other appropriate testing, we provide diagnosis and treatment recommendations for babies, children, and teens with possible neurological disorders, including:
- Muscular dystrophy and other myopathies
- Narcolepsy and neuro-related sleep disorders
- Neurodegenerative disorders
- Tourette’s syndrome and movement disorders
We also provide neurological consultations for pregnant women whose babies may face neurological issues.
We Use the Most Advanced Testing & Treatment Technology
We use the most advanced technology available for the precise diagnosis and treatment of your child’s neurological condition. Most of the care we provide is on an outpatient basis. Child-life specialists are on-site to make sure your child’s experience is as stress-free as possible.
Baystate is home to the region’s only outpatient EEG (electroencephalogy) facility designed for children of all ages, located within our practice at the Baystate Children’s Specialty Center. Your child’s EEG – a test that measures brain activity – is performed by a pediatric EEG technician, without sedation.
In addition, we offer long-term inpatient EEG monitoring for selected patients. Some patients have a vagus nerve stimulator (VNS), a type of brain pacemaker for epilepsy treatment; one of our specialists has special training in making outpatient adjustments to the VNS at the Baystate Children’s Specialty Center.
In addition, we perform inpatient video and ambulatory EEG monitoring, as well as vagus nerve stimulator (VNS) adjustments, a therapy to prevent seizures.
We also provide pediatric sleep evaluations for babies, children, and teens in the Baystate Neurodiagnostics & Sleep Center, the only facility with the specially-trained experts to perform sleep studies on children of all ages, including infants.
