Pediatric neurology is a specialized branch of medicine focusing on neurological conditions in newborns, infants, children, and adolescents. The pediatric neurologists working with Desert Care Network have the concentration of identifying and treating problems with a child’s brain and nervous system. Through our neonatal neurology department, we are capable of diagnosing babies while they are still in the womb in order to commence an appropriate care plan upon their birth. Feel confident that you and your family are in good hands.
