Pediatric Neurology is the medical specialty that deals with diseases and disorders that affect the central nervous system (brain and spinal cord) and the peripheral nervous system (nerves and muscles).
Neurological diseases and disorders in childhood affect a developing nervous system and can therefore have an impact, to a greater or lesser degree, on the normal neurodevelopment of the child.
Addressing many of the child's neurological problems requires multidisciplinary teams in which neuropediatricians and other professionals (psychologists, speech therapists, physiotherapists, and other medical specialists) work together to provide comprehensive care to the child. and their families.
The Pediatric Neurology Unit of Sabadell Hospital is part of the Pediatric Medicine Service.
