Neurology Clinic
We've Moved!

The Child Neurology Clinic at UCSF Benioff Children's Hospital specializes in the diagnosis and treatment of infants, children and teens with conditions of the nervous system. Children often are referred first to the Neurology Clinic and evaluated by doctors, nurses and other health professionals before being referred to other neurological specialists.

Many neurological problems in children are congenital — birth defects or conditions that emerge in the womb — that don't develop in adults. For newborns and infants, specialized teams treat rare and complex conditions of the brain, spine and other parts of the nervous system.

We offer state-of-the-art treatment for craniofacial anomalies, which are abnormalities of the skull and face, and craniosynostosis, the premature closure of the skull's sutures or fibrous joints between the bones of the skull.

Our UCSF Pediatric Stroke and Cerebrovascular Disease Center is staffed by the world's leading experts in stroke and cerebrovascular disease among children. And our Pediatric Epilepsy Center specializes in comprehensive diagnosis and the most advanced treatments for infants, children and adolescents living with epilepsy.
