Neonatal Neurology Program
Neonatal neurology is the diagnosis, care, and treatment of neurological conditions in newborns.
There are several reasons why a newborn baby may have a neurological condition. Neurological issues can be present at birth (congenital) or can be due to prematurity or difficult delivery. We understand that the possibility of a neurological condition discovered in your newborn can bring a great deal of fear, anxiety, and uncertainty. That is why Child Neurology Consultants of Austin offers a special multidisciplinary program to address your needs. We vow to help guide you every step of the way – from diagnosis and treatment to long-term follow-up care.
