Children’s Neurology and Neurosurgery

The Children’s Neuroscience Center is a collaboration between UTHealth Houston Neurosciences and Children’s Memorial Hermann Hospital. The Center provides a broad range of diagnostic and treatment services for children with complex neurological problems including autism, brachial plexus disorders, brain tumors and malformations, cerebral palsy, congenital hydrocephalus, craniofacial disorders, developmental disorders, epilepsy, chronic headache and migraine, head trauma, learning disabilities, movement disorders, myopathy, neurofibromatosis, neurometabolic disorders, neuromuscular disorders, pediatric stroke, peripheral nerve disorders, sleep disorders, spina bifida, Tourette syndrome, and tuberous sclerosis complex.

UTHealth Houston Neurosciences physicians have specialized pediatric neurosurgical expertise in congenital malformations, including Chiari malformation; endoscopic neurosurgery; and treatment for pediatric stroke, spinal deformities, and traumatic brain and spine injury.

Our physicians treat patients at Children’s Memorial Hermann Hospital, where care is delivered in a child-friendly, reassuring environment to promote well-being and the best possible outcomes. When surgery is required, UTHealth Houston physicians use advanced imaging techniques and minimally invasive procedures that lower patient risk. On-site sedation is available for imaging studies with care provided by specially trained pediatric anesthesiologists and pediatric nurses.
