Stony Brook Children's brings a breadth and depth of expertise to the care of children with neurological disorders. As Suffolk County's only Child Neurology program based in an academic medical institution, our team works on the front lines of medicine. We take on the region's most clinically complex cases; conduct vital research studies; and, as faculty of the Stony Brook University School of Medicine, teach tomorrow's neurologists.
Within Child Neurology, we have three specialty centers that provide comprehensive, multidisciplinary evaluation, treatment and long-term management of multiple sclerosis, epilepsy and Duchenne muscular dystrophy. Our Lourie Center for Pediatric Multiple Sclerosis is a designated Center of Excellence by the National Multiple Sclerosis Society. Our Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy Comprehensive Care Center is unparalleled in the region, and is modeled on standards of excellence established by the Centers for Disease Control and other national organizations.
