Expert Brain and Nervous System Care

Children’s brains send signals to the body that affect movement, learning, behavior and emotions. Nemours Children's Health neurologists treat disorders involving these signals. We also treat brain injuries and tumors.

Our hospital in Delaware is ranked as one of the top hospitals for neurology and neurosurgery by U.S. News and World Report. This means our outcomes, expertise and facilities are all outstanding.

We see kids from all over the world, with nearly every childhood neurological condition or brain injury. We see many children with:

  • epilepsy (seizure disorder)
  • cerebral palsy 
  • neuromuscular disorders 

We also diagnose and help kids with problems like migraines, nerve pain, muscle weakness and sleep disorders. We can even diagnose babies in the womb and create a care plan before birth. 

Nemours Children's neurology is a hub of research activity, with access to the latest clinical trials. We’re always looking for improved ways to give kids the best possible care.

  • We’re home to a top-rated hospital for neurology. Nemours Children’s Hospital, Delaware is one of the top-rated hospitals for neurology and neurosurgery care, according to U.S. News & World Report rankings.
  • We have innovated how to pinpoint seizures. We were the first pediatric hospital to focus positron emission tomography with magnetic resonance, or PET/MR, on brain disorders. This has allowed us to pinpoint the cause of a child’s seizure activity, a big step in helping a child become seizure-free.
  • We’re researching new treatments for neurological conditions. We are investigating advanced techniques, medicines and therapies, particularly for children with epilepsy, autism and spinal muscular atrophy (SMA).
  • 10 Neurologists on our team
  • 25+ Active clinical trials and research studies
  • 90% Patients seizure-free after we pinpoint the location of their seizures
