Pediatric Neurology

The MCW Pediatric Neurology Division consists of a dedicated team of physicians and allied health professionals, who provide consultative care to children with a wide variety of neurological disorders in a tertiary care setting.

We exist as an academic Pediatric Neurology Division to excel in research, teaching, and patient care. It is our mission to set and maintain high standards worthy of emulation by others in all three of these areas.
