Dr. Moreira Eyng joins the Boys Town pediatric neuroscience team, having recently completed a Pediatric Epilepsy Fellowship and a Child Neurology Fellowship at the University of Chicago, Illinois. “I like neurology because it is a field that is constantly and rapidly evolving,” Dr. Moreira Eyng said. “The innovations in terms of diagnosis and treatment are very promising and are changing the way we practice medicine.” This continual growth in the field gives our pediatric neuroscience team options to treat disorders that were untreatable ten or even five years ago.
A graduate of Faculdade Universidade Regional de Blumenau Curitiba-SC, Brazil, Dr. Moreira Eyng completed her Pediatric Residency at Nassau University Medical Center, East Meadow, New York.
“I am both a pediatric neurologist and a pediatric epileptologist,” Dr. Moreira Eyng said. “I have a special interest in new-onset seizures, genetically determined epilepsy, epilepsy syndromes, autism and epilepsy, and intractable epilepsy.”
For Dr. Moreira Eyng, an integral part of the life-changing care she will provide at Boys Town ties back to the strong work ethic she holds on behalf of her patients. “My patients rely on me to be up-to-date on the latest treatments, not only in terms of their physical health but also in terms of their quality of life,” she said. “ For me, it’s important that my patients and families feel supported along their health condition journey.”
