Program Description

The Section of Pediatric Neurology at Rush University Medical Center in Chicago, Illinois, treats a wide range of diseases, from learning and behavior disorders to those requiring critical care. We provide medical care for children with meningitis, encephalitis, epilepsy, brain tumors, central nervous system infections, mental retardation, cerebral palsy, muscular dystrophy, neuropathies, spina bifida, hydrocephalus, central nervous system malformations, neurocutaneous disorders and attention deficit disorder.


Services Provided
  • Muscular Dystrophy Clinic: The largest program of its kind in the Chicago area, this clinic is operated by the Section of Pediatric Neurology in conjunction with the Neurology and Orthopedics departments. The clinic is associated with the Muscular Dystrophy Association.
  • Fragile X Syndrome Clinic: This clinic is dedicated to the care of children with Fragile X syndrome, an X-chromosome-linked condition that is the most common inherited cause of mental retardation. The clinic is the only one of its kind in Chicago and one of few in the Midwest.
  • Rush Epilepsy Center: One of the largest programs of its kind in Chicago, the center offers many treatment options for children with epilepsy and other seizure-related disorders.

Clinical Team

The Section of Pediatric Neurology at Rush University Medical Center in Chicago, Illinois, is staffed by experts in the field. We work closely with other specialists at Rush to provide the most advanced care for children with neurological illnesses. We coordinate pediatric nurse-supervised sedation for CT and MRI scanning with our neuroradiologists, who provide a full range of radiologic imaging of the nervous system for our young patients. In addition, because of the strong connection between the brain and behavior disorders, a team of child psychiatrists, psychologists and behavioral pediatricians is also available to work with patients and their families, as necessary.
