The University of Chicago Medicine - Comer Children's Hospital

Why Choose Us for Neurologic Care?

Experts in Complex Problems

Our pediatric neurologists are experts at diagnosing and treating complex disorders that are often viewed as untreatable elsewhere. Physicians from all over the world send us their young patients, particularly their most complex cases. We specialize in treating children with intractable epilepsy, neurofibromatosis, and tuberous sclerosis.

Access to New Treatments

Our patients often have access to new treatments years before they are widely available at other medical centers. Many of our neurologists and neurosurgeons are actively exploring promising new therapies for neurocutaneous disorders, epilepsy, neurofibromatosis, and other neurological problems that affect children.

Compassionate Care

We treat children--and their families--with respect and compassion. Our healthcare team keeps families informed and involved from diagnosis through treatment.

State-of-the-Art Diagnostics

Our physicians are trailblazers in using advanced imaging technologies to analyze the brain's anatomy and its electrical activity. The sophisticated diagnostic tools available here enable our pediatric neurologists to better diagnose and define disorders, which leads to more effective treatments.

Internationally Known Genetics Team

Our genetics group serves as a national resource for families with genetic-related problems as well as for referring physicians. Many state-of-the-art tests were developed here at the University of Chicago. And, we continue to be a genetics leader with the number of genetic tests now available--due to the Human Genome Project--growing rapidly. We also have relationships with other specialty genetic labs that can perform a wide range of complex diagnostic tests.
