Your Child’s Neurological Needs Are Our Main Concern
Excellence with a Heart
Our doctors develop caring, personal, and often lasting bonds with their patients. We call this “excellence with a heart.” This approach is so important to us that we only employ health professionals who share our philosophy and mindset.
Your Child’s Team
Most neurological disorders affect multiple aspects of physical, emotional, and social well-being. As a result, your child’s care team may consist of experts from a wide variety of specialties and services. These may include medical genetics, neuropsychology, neurosurgery, child development and behavioral health, social work, developmental pediatrics, physical/occupational/speech therapy, nutrition, and adult neurology.
Consistent, Timely Communication
We coordinate your child's care in a way that ensures consistent and timely communication between specialists. Your child’s doctors work together to make decisions that result in maximum benefit to your child.
Undiagnosed Diseases Network
If your child's disorder is difficult to diagnose, he or she may participate in additional testing through the Undiagnosed Diseases Network -- a research study funded by the National Institutes of Health to improve and accelerate diagnosis of rare and undiagnosed conditions. Duke is one of the network's 12 clinical sites across the U.S.
Transition to Adult Neurology Care
Our pediatric neurologists work closely with Duke Health adult neurologists and are committed to supporting you and your child when he or she reaches adulthood.
