Members of the Division of Child Neurology at Columbia University are dedicated to giving the highest level of care to children and
families afflicted by disorders of the nervous system by combining the best available technology with compassionate care.

Pediatric neurologists at Columbia have a long history of caring for children with inborn errors of metabolism that involve the nervous system. Bernard Sachs, the founder of the child neurology division at Morgan Stanley Children's Hospital, described Tay–Sachs disease, and current faculty are in the forefront of knowledge concerning mitochondrial diseases, glucose transporter deficiency, lysosomal storage diseases, neuromuscular disorders, disorders of nervous system development and congenital disorders of glycosylation.

Our neurologists also investigate and manage cerebral palsy, developmental delay, autistic spectrum disorders, movement disorders, and chronic headache. They participate in the treatment of children with head and spinal trauma in collaboration with our pediatric neurosurgeons.

The Pediatric Epilepsy Center at Children's Hospital of New York utilizes sophisticated diagnostic techniques, including video-encephalography (EEG) monitoring, biochemical and imaging modalities, to investigate children with seizure disorders. Some children benefit from surgery, which is guided by sophisticated brain mapping techniques
