Neurology, Epilepsy and Autism
The Division of Pediatric Neurology at The Children's Hospital at Montefiore (CHAM) is committed to offering children with neurological diseases a thorough diagnosis and carefully managed, cutting-edge treatment plan through our comprehensive, family-centered approach to care. Our pioneering, world renowned doctors and multidisciplinary support team are also dedicated to educating and empowering each child’s extended care network and helping the entire family to enjoy the highest quality of life possible. Through a commitment to advanced technology, superior clinical excellence and exceptional medical education, U.S. News & World Report ranked CHAM in the top 25 of "America's Best Children's Hospitals" and second in the New York tri-state region for neurology and neurosurgery in 2011. The hospital has been consistently recognized in this prestigious listing for four consecutive years.
We are recognized internationally for offering exceptional clinical care to children with neurological diseases, and for our academic and clinical accomplishments. We strive to continually enhance our expertise in the following areas within the field of neurology:
Comprehensive, family-centered care
Our Centers of Excellence for Epilepsy (a New York State designated Comprehensive Epilepsy Center) and Autism, and their regular research initiatives, also allow us to offer groundbreaking specialization that goes far beyond what is offered at smaller, less comprehensive centers. These centers also allow for invaluable collaboration between experts in different areas, who can offer the most sophisticated approach to each case in a convenient, centralized location. Our Muscular Dystrophy Center is funded by the Muscular Dystrophy Association and is an important resource for the caregivers of children diagnosed with this chronic condition.
We are able to provide both inpatient and outpatient treatment, and we proudly occupy a role at the forefront of diagnosis and treatment of childhood seizure disorders and autism, as well as a specialized interest in neonatal neurology. We have developed a particularly effective comprehensive treatment for headaches that combines medication and adjunct therapies.
Commitment to ongoing research
Among our cutting-edge research initiatives are studies in the following area:
Research into epilepsy, language disorders, movement disorders, autism, headache, and muscle disease
The relationship between seizures and seizure-induced brain injury
The epidemiology of autism and language disorders
Specialized treatment of childhood seizure disorders
Our expert specialists have published more than 600 articles in peer reviewed journals and lectured extensively at national and international meetings. Our doctors are also active in educating a new generation of specialists through the Albert Einstein College of Medicine and our own in-house residency program.
