Comprehensive Pediatric Neurological Care
Neurological disorders in children can be present at birth (congenital), or they can develop as a child grows. While all neurological disorders involve the brain, nerves or spinal column, symptoms can vary greatly depending on the condition.
Signs of a neurological problem may include tremors, seizures, changes in reflexes, severe headaches, muscle rigidity, and delays in developmental milestones. Having your child properly diagnosed and treated can make a major difference in your child's quality of life today and in the future.
Our neurology practice, part of The Leon Pediatric Neuroscience Center of Excellence, features a multidisciplinary team of pediatric neurology experts offering advanced treatments for a wide range of neurological conditions, including:
- Seizures and Epilepsy
- Childhood Headaches
- Developmental Delay
- Cerebral Palsy
- Congenital Brain Disorders
- Concussion and Head Injuries
- Neuromuscular Disorders
- Tics and Movement Disorders
- Neurocutaneous Syndromes
- Demyelinating Diseases
- Neuroimmunological Disorders
- Neurometabolic disorders
- Spina Bifida
Doctors at the Leon Pediatric Neuroscience Center of Excellence use various tests to diagnose possible neurological conditions in infants and children. These may include motor function, balance, reflex and sensory exams, and more advanced tests to address the health of the muscles and nerves, and the transmission of electrical signals within the brain. Diagnosing a child's neurological condition may also involve genetic testing through the Orlando Health Arnold Palmer Hospital for Children Division of Genetics.
Our physicians use a full range of integrative medical treatments, from pharmacological therapies to holistic approaches including ketogenic diet plans for the treatment of seizures. Patients and their families may also be educated on lifestyle strategies to minimize the onset of symptoms and to support ongoing healing.
Care No Matter What
“The doctors really and truly have the best interest of my child, not what’s going to be best for the hospital, but what’s going to best for the child.” -- Matt, father of Owen

In 45 Seconds, Everything Turned Upside Down
“We got a second change with Delaney because of the doctors and nurses who never game up on us.”
-- Michelle, mother of Delaney
Michelle and her husband, Ben, became concerned when Delaney started waking up crying in the middle of the night and refusing to nap. With two older children, the experienced parents knew something was wrong. Then came the first seizure. Over time, Delaney was having seizures every week, and doctors couldn’t figure out what was wrong. During a PET scan at Orlando Health Arnold Palmer Hospital, they discovered a lesion and decided surgery was the best option. Delaney is now seizure free.
