About the RCH Neurology Department

  • The Department of Neurology is made up of a dedicated team of health professionals and administrative staff, working together to improve the health outcomes of infants, children and adolescents with disorders of the brain, nerves and muscles.

    We provide high quality outpatient and inpatient services for the diagnosis and management of neurological disorders.  Areas of particular expertise are epilepsy, neuromuscular diseases, stroke, neuroimmunology, neonatal neurology and neurogenetics. Our neurophysiology service provides routine EEG (electroencephalogram), ambulatory EEG monitoring, home and long-term inpatient video EEG monitoring (VEM), and nerve conduction studies and electromyography (EMG).

    The department is involved in teaching of undergraduate and post graduate nursing, medical and allied health professionals and we undertake active clinical and laboratory based research in the areas of epilepsy, neuromuscular disease, stroke, neonatal neurology and malformations of the brain.

    We have strong links with community based groups including the Muscular Dystrophy Association and the Epilepsy Foundation, and are recognised for our involvement in national and international professional organisations.

    The team includes doctors, nurses, neurophysiology scientists, occupational therapists, physiotherapists, speech therapists, neuropsychologists, dieticians, social workers, secretaries and administrative officers.
