The Pediatric NeuroModulation Clinic
Many children experience issues of what we call 'neuromodulation," meaning walking, balancing, and movement. At the Neuromodulation Clinic, our multidisciplinary team of specialists evaluates children with any movement disorder, but we commonly see children with cerebral palsy, dystonia, traumatic brain injury, stroke, tumors, and similar conditions. We offer individually tailored care to help children regain or improve function.
Our specialists are trained to diagnose and treat a wide range of movement disorders in children and adolescents. Because we come from different specialties, we have the ability to look at a child's issue from multiple perspectives.
Many children with known diagnoses come to us in search of alternative options for care; others are misdiagnosed and therefore have not been treated effectively. Some parents and physicians may not know what options even exist. At the NeuroModulation Clinic, our goal is to recognize exactly what's limiting your child's movement and identify what your goals are. We can then develop an appropriate treatment plan based upon those factors.
Our first line of treatment is always non-surgical. Our collaborative approach means that we'll always exhaust all non-invasive options before we discuss surgical intervention. If your child does require surgery, the Clinic offers the combined resources of NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital/Weill Cornell Medical Center and the Hospital for Special Surgery to ensure the child receives the best possible care.
