A child neurologist, often known as a paediatric neurologist, is a specialist who specialises in treating children with nervous system disorders. The brain, spine, nerves, or muscles can all be the source of nervous system problems.
Many clinics have the specialised equipment and knowledge necessary to treat specific diseases such as uncommon neurodegenerative diseases, intractable epilepsy, and paediatric strokes. A paediatric neurologist is a specialist who aims to treat the wide variety of neurological illnesses that affect children and adolescents. A paediatric neurologist sees a diverse range of patients. They treat both common neurological ailments such as migraines, epilepsy and also more severe or uncommon conditions such as traumatic brain injury, metabolic abnormalities, and degenerative neurological diseases.
Child neurologists work with them from infancy through young adulthood. They have chosen to focus their medical practice on children, and their extensive training and expertise enable them to satisfy your children’s specific needs.
In paediatric neurology practice, roughly 40% to 50% of patients have seizures, 20% have learning issues or developmental disabilities, and 20% have headaches. The number of patients treated by paediatric neurologists has rare or atypical problems, such as metabolic or genetic disorders.
