Child Neurology


Child neurology refers to the care of children with neurologic disorders—conditions that affect the brain, spinal cord, nerves, or muscles.  OU has the largest group of child neurologists—and the only ones with subspecialty training—in the state of Oklahoma.   Our providers offer comprehensive outpatient services in the OU Children’s Physicians Building and comprehensive inpatient consultative services in The Children’s Hospital at OUMC.  We also direct the only pediatric epilepsy monitoring unit in the state of Oklahoma in The Children’s Hospital at OUMC.
