A child’s brain and behavior make up much of who they are and how they experience the world. The Brain and Behavior Center is one of the nation's leading programs for treating children, from newborns to adolescents, with disorders of brain development, function and behavior.
Creating the best outcome for your child starts with building the best team. Our Brain and Behavior team is recognized as one of the best in the country. In fact, Lucile Packard Children's Hospital Stanford is nationally ranked in Neurology and Neurosurgery by U.S. News & World Report. Our team of physician-scientists from the Stanford University School of Medicine collaborate to advance treatments that allow us to successfully treat many children with complex cases that could not be resolved elsewhere. Through a blend of clinical expertise and individualized treatment plans, our experts help children reach their fullest potential.
