The Neurosciences Centre of Excellence at Al Jalila Children’s Specialty Hospital is one among the most advanced facilities in the region that specifically caters to disorders of the nervous system in children. As the only dedicated hospital for children in the UAE, the Centre features state-of-the-art diagnostic equipment and consultants with years of paediatric experience from some of the renowned hospitals around the world.
