Barrow Neurological Institute at Phoenix Children's

“We heal children with neurological, mental and behavioral health diseases and disorders so they can lead happy and healthy quality of lives.”P. David Adelson, MD, FACS, FAAP | Director, Barrow Neurological Institute at Phoenix Children's


Our mission is to heal children with complex and severe neurological, mental and behavioral illnesses.

In 2018, our neurosurgery and neurology services were nationally recognized by U.S. News and World Report when they awarded us a Best Children’s Hospitals ranking.

In addition to patient care, we better ourselves through the development of strategic partnerships with clinical research groups locally, nationally and internationally. This emphasis on learning carries over to our teaching and professional educational programs. Education is vital to our vision. We have several accredited residency and fellowship programs, designed to continually improve care through research and education. Our added laboratories strive to make discoveries that lead to advances in neuroscience diagnosis and treatment options.

We are a premier Center of Excellence and destination for management and cure of neurologically-related pediatric diseases/disorders by providing thorough, high quality patient and family-centered care. Combine that with state-of-the-art clinical and translational research, and our professional and community education programs, and you have one of the best pediatric neurological institutes in the world.
