As part of our clinic, our patients and families also have access to nurses who are knowledgeable in pediatric neurological illness. Inpatient care is provided both within the UVA Children’s Hospital in consultation with members of the Department of Pediatrics as well as in our state-of-the-art Epilepsy Monitoring Unit which provides us the ability to better evaluate children with epilepsy as well as non-epileptic events.
