Children with brain, spine, muscle and nerve conditions come to the Nemours Neuroscience Center for expertise and integrated care. We bring together renowned specialists to care for kids of all ages, from newborns to teens.
Our neurologists and neurosurgeons lead programs ranked among the best in the nation by U.S. News & World Report. We work as a team to evaluate your child and create a care plan based on their specific needs.
We offer advanced, award-winning services for kids. We have a Level 4 epilepsy center (the highest accreditation) and provide care for brain and nerve tumors, headaches and migraines, neuromuscular conditions and more. We’re also researching new treatments and offering clinical trials and therapies not widely available.
You get everything your child needs, all in one system — and often where it’s closer to home. We’re at Nemours Children’s Hospital, Delaware in Wilmington, and at convenient locations throughout the Delaware Valley and Greater Philadelphia.
Our neuroscience team sees children with nearly every neurological condition, from mild to complex. This expertise can mean better outcomes.

We're always looking for new ways to diagnose and treat neuromuscular conditions. In fact, our children’s hospital was among the first in the nation to offer a Gait Analysis Laboratory, where we use advanced techniques to analyze the way your child walks. This helps us make the best possible treatment decisions — surgical and nonsurgical — for your child’s condition.Learn More
