The Neurogenetics Clinic at Children's Hospital specializes in identifying and treating children with neurological disorders through the use of genetic research.
Our providers specialize in conditions such as intellectual disability, global developmental delay, autism, brain malformations, epilepsy, ataxia, abnormal muscle tone, movement disorders and complex diseases that impact the brain. The team includes health care professionals from advanced practice nursing, genetic counseling, nutrition, social work, palliative care and behavior analysis.
Appointments take place Wednesday afternoons on the sixth floor of Doctors' Office Tower at the hospital. We only accept patients referred to us by another health care professional. We provide care to infants, children and adults.
Ours is the only dedicated pediatric neurogenetics clinic in the state of Tennessee and one of only a few in the southeast.
We also participate in numerous clinical trials that can offer your child and family other avenues of care and treatment.
Our physicians are board-certified in both pediatric neurology and genetics.
