Children’s neurologist in Kharkiv
Pediatric neurology is a branch of medicine that studies methods of therapy of diseases of the central and peripheral nervous system.
Most anomalies of the nervous system manifest themselves at an early age and lead to serious developmental disorders if left neglected.
Scheduled consultation of a pediatric neurologist enables to monitor the correct physical and neurological development of a child, timely diagnose pathologies of the nervous system, and prescribe effective therapy.
What does a pediatric neurologist treat?
Neurological diseases in children develop for the following reasons:
- severe course of pregnancy - an unhealthy lifestyle, poor ecology, stresses or infections suffered by the expectant mother can affect the development of the fetus;
- poor heredity is an important factor in the developmental anomalies of the nervous system;
- toxic disorders - contact with the skin of heavy metals, toxins and allergens or their entry with food can provoke acute reactions in the central nervous system and peripheral nerves;
- • injuries, received during the passage of the birth canal, and after birth.
Most of the early neurological disorders are associated with fetal hypoxia or difficult delivery. Also infectious lesions can lead to disease of the nervous system.
Doctors of the pediatric neurology department diagnose the condition of the young patient, determine the cause of the pathology, and select an optimal treatment.
What is the difference between a pediatric neurologist and a neuropathologist?
When registering for an appointment with a neurologist, parents may not know the consultation of which specialist - a neurologist or a neuropathologist - is necessary for their child. A neurologist is a specialist engaged in treatment of lesions of the nervous system, that are not related to mental disorders.
The term “neuropathologist” was widely used several years ago. It was the specialty of the doctors in the field of neurology. Currently, this term is considered to be obsolete and out of use. In fact, a neurologist and a neuropathologist are the same doctor who can help identify the cause of a neurological disease in a child.
What questions can be asked to the pediatric neurologist at the visit?
Scheduled consultation of a children’s neurologist is held every three months in the first year of a baby’s life. Then it is recommended to visit the doctor annually, even if the parents do not notice any disturbing symptoms in the child’s behavior. On examination, the doctor checks the child’s reflexes, asks about sleep and feeding patterns. Parents or guardians can discuss with the doctor any questions that may be of concern to them, for example, developmental norms, new skills learnt by babies, and so on.
An unscheduled visit to a neurologist is necessary in case the following symptoms appear:
- convulsions and tic disorders;
- restless sleep;
- abundant and frequent regurgitation;
- urinary incontinence;
- problems with concentration of attention;
- developmental delays;
- dizziness and fainting.
A child may complain of frequent headaches, becomes hyposthenic and apathetic, and loses interest in games and activities. All this may indicate the presence of neurological disorders. Parents should remember that the functional development and restructuring of the nervous system in children occurs practically without interruptions. It is important to visit a doctor regularly to control these processes.
You can make an appointment with a neurologist at the Medical Center “ON Clinic Kharkiv”. Here you will visit qualified doctors with extensive experience, working with children of different ages. Pediatric neurologists use contemporary high-precision diagnostic methods and advanced techniques for treating diseases of the nervous system.
