The pediatric-friendly rooms in our Neurophysiology Lab are specifically designed to represent a child’s bedroom at home. Our goal is to promote the comfort of children and families in a non-threatening yet professional environment.

      • EEG
      • Ambulatory Video EEG
      • Overnight Video EEG (in our offices)
      • Sleep Study (Polysomnography)
      • MSLT (Multiple Sleep Latency Test for Narcolepsy)
      • PAP Studies (CPAP, BiPAP, and PAP Naps)

 

 

Below are some of the types of issues discussed in a neurological examination:

      • Cerebral Palsy
      • Developmental Delay
      • Dystonia
      • Epilepsy
      • Scholastic Difficulties
      • Sleep Disorders
      • Spasticity

 

 

Our providers manage the VNS adjustments for patients with epilepsy.

 

 

The FDA has recently approved Botox® for upper limb spasticity and migraines in adults.

J. Ben Renfroe, M.D. has been treating both adults and children for dystonia and spasticity since 1997. Weldon A. Mauney, M.D. has recently joined Dr. Renfroe in this work. Dr. Renfroe and Dr. Mauney provide care for patients with dystonia and/or spasticity by using Botulinum Toxin. In addition, both doctors manage the Intrathecal Baclofen Pumps in patients.

 

 

Child Neurology Center provides evaluation and intervention for acute concussion and post-concussion syndrome. We work closely with regional experts at both the Andrews Institute in Gulf Breeze, Florida and Sacred Heart Hospital.

What is a concussion?

A concussion is an injury to the brain, usually due to a blow to the head. A concussion can cause confusion, memory loss, or loss of consciousness. Repeated concussions can result in permanent brain injury, or even death.

How is a concussion diagnosed?

Diagnosis is accomplished by obtaining a detailed history of the injury, by performing a thorough neurological examination, and by obtaining imaging studies such as CT or MRI of the brain. Examiners may also use IMPACT (Immediate Post-concussion Assessment and Cognitive Testing) computerized software to track the child’s recovery for a safe return to normal activity.
