Dr. Arif Khan - NeuropediaWelcome to the Neuropedia website, and thank you for taking the time to learn about our center and the services we provide. We are the first comprehensive pediatric neuroscience center in the region and we are dedicated to providing excellent medical care with a personal touch and convenience that only a specialized center can offer. One of the major drivers behind the development of Neuropedia has been the lack of a holistic neuro-multidisciplinary service for children in the country. We aim for our comprehensive and integrated model to be recognised as a benchmark for children’s neuroscience care which is emulated around the country and the region.

What sets Neuropedia apart is our staff and our approach. We bring interdisciplinary and collaborative neuroscience care involving child neurologists, child psychiatrists, psychologists, specialised nurses, physical therapists, behavioural therapists and other allied specialities. The model we employ at our center emphasizes first the importance of accurate diagnosis before embarking on any rehabilitative process. We have therefore brought in all relevant specialities under one-roof. This makes an integrated, collaborative, multi-disciplinary and effective neuroscience care a reality. With a spirit of tenacity and teamwork, amidst an environment of continued challenges, Neuropedia children’s neuroscience center is striving to create a culture of service excellence. We strive to be the regional leader for neuroscience and child development. Education and academia is one of our topmost priority. We are dedicated to bring in a strong teaching culture led by key leaders in neuroscience education.

Every child we care for receives world-class care, compassion and excellent service that we would expect for our loved ones.

We strongly urge every child and parent that walks through our doors to be a part of the Neuropedia family and help us further enhance and refine our services.

I would like to extend my most sincere greetings and thanks to all those who have contributed to the successful launch of Neuropedia Children’s Neuroscience Center. I would like to extend a special thank you to our children and their parents who have provided invaluable feedback and support to us in making this venture possible.

We at Neuropedia will remain committed to making decisions based on what is best for our patients and community while living our mission of offering compassionate healthcare everyday.

    Lorem Ipsum is simply dummy text of the printing and typesetting industry. Lorem Ipsum has been the industry’s standard dummy text ever since the 1500s, when an unknown printer took a galley of type and scrambled it to make a type specimen book. It has survived not only five centuries, but also the leap into electronic typesetting, remaining essentially unchanged. It was popularised in the 1960s with the release of Letraset sheets containing Lorem Ipsum passages, and more recently with desktop publishing software like Aldus PageMaker including versions of Lorem Ipsum.
