Pediatric Neurology Division

The division of pediatric neurology at the University of Miami School of Medicine, in affiliation with Miami Children’s Hospital, is committed to the diagnosis and treatment of childhood-onset neurologic disorders. Working out of the Holtz Children’s Hospital at Jackson Memorial Hospital, patients from South Florida and the Caribbean, are cared for in a new state of the art pediatric facility including an intensive care unit, one of the largest neonatal intensive care units in the nation, a video EEG telemetry unit, and a soon to be inaugurated pediatric neurosciences unit, which will provide the care for patients with neurologic disorders, comprised by an interdisciplinary team of neurology, neurosurgery, and rehabilitation services. The faculty is actively involved in research projects studying neuro-developmental and genetic disorders and demyelinating diseases of childhood, as well as the teaching of medical students, pediatric and neurology residents and fellows.
