Barrow Neurological Institute at Phoenix Children’s is the most complete pediatric neurosciences center of excellence in Arizona. Our world-renowned physicians go beyond standard offerings with expertise in developmental pediatrics – including autism spectrum disorder and Down syndrome – psychology, neuropsychology, psychiatry, physical medicine and rehabilitation, even a dedicated neurocritical care program – the only one of its kind in the Southwest. Add to that our pioneering research around traumatic brain injuries and cerebral palsy, our partnered approach in neuro-oncology and our National Association of Epilepsy Centers Level 4 accreditation and it’s evident we’re leaders in healing children with neurological, mental and behavioral health diseases and disorders.
