Research & Innovation
At Children’s Hospital Boston, our team is experienced in recognizing the signs of Guillain-Barré so that we can make an accurate diagnosis, and then providing expert monitoring and treatment for your child.
Our physicians, nurses and technologists know that providing the best possible care for your child means not only getting accurate data from a diagnostic test or providing the right treatment: It also means treating your child with compassion. Because we’re dedicated to treating children and teenagers, we have the expertise it takes to help your child feel at ease throughout her time in the hospital.
Especially unusual is the fact that our electromyography (EMG) laboratory is just for kids. That means that our physicians and technologists are experienced in working with children, putting them at ease and making them as comfortable as possible.
Children’s also has a wealth of professionals—like our Child Life specialists, Clown Care performers and social workers—who can help make your child’s hospital stay easier for both her and your whole family. Visit the Family resources tab of Children’s For Patients and Families site to learn more about these and other programs.
