At Banner Children’s, our pediatric neurology team works closely with other practices, such as orthopedic and sleep physicians, to determine the best treatment for your child. As the brain grows and develops, we are here to diagnose and treat problems requiring expert skill and care. With a team that is truly committed, we provide comprehensive care and individualized treatment plans specific to your child’s needs and condition.
Thanks to advancements in technology and research-driven findings, there are many different types of pediatric neurology treatment options available. Depending on the condition, options for your child may include:
Medications are one way to help manage pain or lessen the effects of certain neurological conditions. The options available will vary depending on your child’s specific condition. Your pediatric neurologist will discuss with you more about whether medication is right for your child.
Neurological rehabilitation is a treatment option for when viruses attack nerves or the nervous system causing neurological diseases or disorders. Neurological rehabilitation is used for conditions such as stroke, trauma, degenerative disorders or infections. Rehab can help build back functions that were damaged and lessen symptoms. Based on our detailed evaluation of your child’s condition, our team of experts will help develop a treatment plan that’s right for your child.
If your child is having trouble with movement or speech, your pediatric neurologist may recommend therapies such as:
Each of these therapies focus on a specific aspect of care while also working together when necessary to provide a greater opportunity for progress. These therapies are offered within Banner Children’s hospital locations or at one of our many outpatient facilities that are convenient to you.
Occasionally, surgery can be the best treatment option for some conditions. At Banner Children’s, we offer neurosurgery for the treatment of spine, vascular neurosurgery, tumors and diseases such as Chiari and Hydrocephalus. Our expert pediatric neurosurgeons take great care of your child before, during and after surgery. We ensure you are being communicated with every step of the way and know what to expect during the surgery process. Our team will also help you understand how to best support your child through this journey and into recovery.
Some disorders have a shorter course of treatment, while others may need ongoing care. As you do your own research, know we are here to answer any questions you have about treatment options and the duration of treatment for your child. We want you to feel supported and empowered as you care for your child during their treatment.
For us, caring for kids is a privilege. We bring the medical insights but your child brings us inspiration with their natural curiosity, wonder and ability to see the world with fresh eyes. We’re here to help your child get back to normal life as soon as possible.
