Pediatric neurology

Pediatric Neurology


There is nothing as valuable as the nervous system of a child. It defines who they are and what they become. When the symptoms of neurologic disease affect a child, the challenge can be difficult to diagnose and treat. It takes an experienced and compassionate team of specialized professionals to help families through these challenges.

The Neurosciences Institute at Albany Med is the only hospital in the region that provides pediatric neurology services. A full spectrum of pediatric neurosurgical and neurological disorders are managed at the Bernard & Millie Duker Children’s Hospital at Albany Mediical Center. Specially trained neurologists and neurosurgeons have expertise in diagnosing and treating disorders of the nervous system in children, which comprise their sole area of concentration. Many of our specialists also have subspecialty expertise in a specific area such as epilepsy, muscle disease, headache and movement disorders.

Dr. Charles Nichter, associate professor of neurology and pediatrics at Albany Medical Center discusses the benefits Albany Med’s pediatric neurology program provides to patients.
