Pediatric Neurology

The pediatric neurology clinic in the Kaplan Medical Center employs a skilled multi-disciplinary team: expert pediatricians and pediatric neurologists, medical psychologists, nurses and social workers.

The clinic team works in full cooperation with the pediatric wards, the children development center and the various pediatrics clinics (genetics, endocrinology, gastro, orthopedics, and imaging) and with medical psychologists.

  • Follow up after children with various neurologic problems identified during admittance in the children’s ward / chidren’s intensive care unit that arrive for follow up in the clinic.
