Comprehensive care for infants through young adults

The Neurology Division at Tufts Medical Center's Tufts Medical Center in Boston offers comprehensive evaluation, consultation and management for diseases of the central, peripheral and autonomic nervous systems and the musculoskeletal system.

Our team, consisting of some of the top physicians in Boston, sees infants, children, teens and young adults with a variety of neurologic problems, including those affecting learning, behavior, communication or movement. We're committed to providing highly accessible, professional and personalized care for patients and their families.

We have specialized expertise spanning:

Our division also directs the Pediatric Electroencephalography (EEG) Laboratory, which allows children to undergo routine outpatient diagnostic studies and extensive inpatient evaluations without leaving Tufts Medical Center.

In addition to Tufts Medical Center in downtown Boston, we provide specialty outpatient services at locations in Lawrence, North Chelmsford and Woburn.

Strength through collaboration

We believe in collaborating with other specialists both within and outside our department. In managing patients, our neurologists often work closely with colleagues in neurosurgery and neuroradiology. As necessary, they also consult with Tufts Medical Center specialists in areas such as Child Psychiatry, Developmental Pediatrics, Genetics, Physical Medicine & Rehabilitation, and Critical Care Medicine.

How does Tufts Medical Center spirit of collaboration impact the patient experience? Your child will receive care from a team of experts who are well-equipped to manage his or her particular neurologic problem. And it all takes place in an intimate environment that you might not expect at a major academic medical center.

Also, we appreciate the bond that many kids have with their primary care physician. So whenever possible, we try to treat your child's condition and then partner with your local doctor for ongoing care.

Clinicians, educators, scholars & scientists

The Neurology Division's physician team represents a broad spectrum of medical expertise. In addition to clinicians focusing on patient care, we have clinicians who also are educators and scholars as well as translational or clinical trial scientists.

All of our doctors maintain an ongoing dialogue with one another, helping ensure your child gets access to the most advanced, promising therapies available today.

Nurturing future leaders in neurology

Teaching and training are essential components of our work. Our division offers medical student clerkships, a child neurology fellowship training program and post-graduate opportunities for pediatric, neurology and psychiatry residents.
