As the only provider of pediatric neurology services in Central Texas, Dell Children’s offers expert staff and leading-edge equipment for treating both acute and chronic neurological conditions, including:
- Developmental disorders such as mental retardation, autism, cerebral palsy and language disorders
- Epilepsy and neuromuscular diseases including muscular dystrophy
- Neurogenetic conditions including brain tumors, headaches, movement disorders and gait disorders
- Acute neurological management of head injuries, neurological infections, strokes and attention deficit disorders
The Pediatric Neurosurgery Center of Central Texas is another medical first for this region. In conjunction with Dell Children’s and the University of Texas Medical Branch, the Pediatric Neurosurgery Center incorporates technological innovation and translational research protocols into patient-minded care. Dell Children’s pediatric neurosurgery program will offer a first for Central Texas — an epilepsy/pre-surgery monitoring unit, which will allow physicians to determine if a patient is a candidate for epilepsy surgery.
