These services are provided by our specialists at Children's Specialized Hospital. 

Our practice uses leading-edge diagnostic testing to gain the fastest and most accurate diagnosis for your child. These tests include:

  • Electroencephalography (EEG)
  • Electromyography (EMG)
  • Evoked potentials (EP; also known as nerve responses)
  • Genetic testing
  • Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI)
  • Video EEG

In cases that require a multidisciplinary approach, we are able to collaborate with experts in other disciplines within the Rutgers Health Pediatric practice. 

Physicians with the Rutgers Health Child Neurology and Neurodevelopmental Disabilities practice are on the faculty of Rutgers Robert Wood Johnson Medical School, a part of Rutgers University, one of the top research institutions in America. Our doctors are active in research and in teaching about all aspects of pediatric and adolescent medicine, as well as child neurology and neurodevelopmental disabilities, and each brings leading-edge knowledge from the classroom to the exam room. Our staff also includes certified nurse practitioners and nurses with neurology experience.
