Specialties

Dr. Barry Kosofsky has the following 2 specialties

  • Child Neurology

    Pediatric neurologists diagnose neurological conditions in children as young as newborn, all the way up to adolescence. They can recommend treatment for sleep disorders, head injuries and headaches, but they also specialize in issues such as epilepsy, seizures and brain tumors.
    Their expertise in childhood development and the nervous system make them an excellent resource for parents of children with autism, cerebral palsy, mental development issues or learning disabilities. You can consult with a pediatric neurologist before, during and after diagnosis depending on your child's specific condition and needs.

  • Neurology

    A neurologist is a physician who diagnoses and treats disorders of the nervous system which is comprised of the brain, spinal cord and nerves. These doctors do not perform surgery, but refer patients to neurological surgeons when they determine that surgical intervention is necessary.
    Some of the conditions that neurologists diagnose and treat are epilepsy, aneurysms, hydrocephalus, Parkinson's disease, multiple sclerosis, stroke, spinal disc herniation, and spinal disease.
    In addition to using diagnostic tests like MRI, CT scans, EEG and EMG, neurologists also employ neurological testing to gauge muscle strength and movement, balance, reflexes, sensation, memory, speech, and other cognitive abilities.

Dr Kosofsky went above and beyond as we had unfortunate hat trick of 3 children with concussions in less than 3 weeks from separate types of sports His team was thorough caring and asked a lot of questions with great follow up and support for returns to learn and return to play -- most importantly he emphasized to the children in a clear and firm and caring manner how serious it is to take best care of their brains and worry and anxiety and rushing only makes things get worse - so rest as long as possible til you get better because it is temporary and you will get better but if you force it too soon it will get worse --- his team's holistic approach and his clinical exposure and incredible research on diagnosing and finding bio markers for concussion susceptibility should be supported -- he is truly there for the children and their families - and he is one of the rare neurologists / research who is not tied with any other affiliations that can give him a conflict of interest with sports league sponsors who have agendas to protect ---
