The Neuroscience Center at Valley Children’s provides diagnostic services, medical treatment and follow-up care to infants, children and adolescents who have suspected or confirmed neurologic brain and spinal cord disorders. Our pediatric board-certified experts in neurology, neurosurgery, neuropsychology and neuro-oncology manage and treat a variety of patients with neurological conditions, including those with epilepsy, neuromuscular disorders and spasticity.

Valley Children’s is the only hospital in Central California to be named a level 4 epilepsy center by the National Association of Epilepsy Centers (NAEC). Level 4 epilepsy centers have the professional expertise and facilities to provide the highest level medical and surgical evaluation and treatment for patients with complex epilepsy.

Working collaboratively with other pediatric subspecialties such as genetics, neonatology, physiatry, otolaryngology (ENT), oncology, ophthalmology, orthopaedics and plastic surgery, the center ensures high-level, compassionate and coordinated care for patients. This collaboration and family-centered care approach is key to helping families get through a difficult diagnosis. Providers, nurses, social workers, therapists, nutritionists and palliative care make sure they are always accessible and can quickly answer all your questions or concerns.
