Comprehensive and Compassionate Care for Children with Genetic Neurologic Disorders
Genetics is at the core of many pediatric neurologic disorders. At NewYork-Presbyterian’s Pediatric Neurogenetics Programs, located at NewYork-Presbyterian/Columbia University Irving Medical Center and NewYork-Presbyterian/ Weill Cornell Medical Center, pediatric neurologists collaborate with clinical geneticists and other experts to provide comprehensive genetic evaluation and care to children of all ages with known or suspected neurologic conditions that have a genetic cause. These include epilepsy, congenital malformations, metabolic disorders such as Krabbe disease, neuromuscular and movement disorders. Our highly personalized approach, coupled with NewYork-Presbyterian’s unmatched resources and services, gives your child the most advanced and compassionate care for longevity and quality of life.
