Pediatric Neurology is a branch of medicine that works in a multi-disciplinary manner to prevent, mitigate, diagnose and treat neurologic diseases in children to ensure a better life for children with neurologic problems. The developing nervous system may be damaged during pregnancy and during or after birth. As a result of this damage or due to genetically inherited diseases, various diseases such as cerebral palsy, epilepsy, mental retardation, movement disorders, autism, muscle diseases, spinal cord and peripheral nerve diseases and affect the life and even lifespan of the child.
Children of all ages can undergo brain tomography and MRI
Liv Hospital carries out the neurologic follow-up of premature and at-risk infants to diagnose and treat many neurologic diseases including seizures, development disorders, fainting, walking and behavior disorders, brain traumas, headaches, epilepsy, autism, muscle and nerve injuries and strokes. EEG records at modern standards can be taken from patients at all ages including infants and children, and evaluated by a pediatric neurology specialist. Additionally children of all ages can undergo brain tomography and MRI. The child's organism is a whole, and diseases of other systems and organs can affect the development and functionality of the child's nervous system. Emergency neurologic problems in children are not rare; coma, stroke, febrile and non-febrile seizures are the most common neurologic emergencies in children. These neurologic problems may cause permanent damage and cause loss of life.
