USNWR Badge - Best Children's Hospital - Neurology and Neurosurgery

Children’s Hospital Los Angeles is ranked among the top pediatric centers in the nation for neurology and neurosurgery by U.S. News & World Report. Our neurologists are experts in diagnosing and treating a host of neurological disorders affecting children. 

We routinely identify rare and difficult-to-diagnose conditions that our patients’ previous doctors could not pinpoint. After determining a diagnosis, we connect children with other appropriate programs within the division.
