When a child has frequent headaches, seizures or a short attention span it could be the sign of a problem with his or her nervous system. At the Division of Child Neurology and Developmental Medicine at Atlantic Health System Children's Health, our pediatric neurologists provide comprehensive care for these patients and educate parents on how to successfully manage their child’s disease.
Pediatric neurological conditions we treat:
- Brain and spine tumors – Our neuro-oncology program provides radiation treatments and neurosurgery when necessary.
- Cerebral palsy
- Pediatric concussions – We use ImPACT™ testing to determine when a child can safely resume activities after a concussion.
- Pediatric epilepsy – Our Level 4 epilepsy center offers electroencephalogram monitoring to diagnose seizures and formulate appropriate treatment plans.
- Pediatric headaches – Our headache board-certified pediatric neurologist specializes in managing all types of child headaches.
- Hydrocephalus and congenital anomalies of the brain
- Neurological complications due to premature birth
- Neuromuscular disorders – We help children improve their mobility and maintain muscle function.
- Spina bifida
- Spinal cord injuries, spinal fusions and tethered spinal cord
As part of Atlantic Health System Children’s Health, we have medical specialists here who provide superior pediatric care that is specific to your child’s needs, while also respectful of every family’s values.

Our family-centered approach ensures that the complex nature of neurological conditions are explained to parents so they fully understand and can become an integral part of the care team. Pediatric neurologists on our team also collaborate with pediatricians in other specialties to help patients live a life that’s as close to normal as possible.
