UR Medicine’s Golisano Children’s Hospital was recognized in three specialty areas — Neonatology, Nephrology, and Neurology & Neurosurgery — in the U.S. News & World Report’s Best Children’s Hospital ranking (2017-2018).
Neurology & Neurosurgery
The Division of Child Neurology treats epilepsy, Tourette syndrome and other movement disorders, complications from brain tumors, Autism Spectrum Disorder, developmental delays, and other rare conditions, including Batten Disease. Child neurologists often work hand-in-hand with the Division of Pediatric Neurosurgery, which provides care for children with spina bifida, hydrocephalus, craniosynostosis, congenital malformations, various brain and head injuries, and more.
The Division of Pediatric Nephrology, which provides care for those with kidney disease and hypertension, has approximately 2,600 patient visits annually. Treating conditions such as hematuria, proteinuria, glomerulonephritis, fluid and electrolyte disorders, kidney stones, and kidney failure, the division has a team of six physicians, a pediatric nurse practitioner, and social worker.
