Jenny Wilson, M.D., is a pediatric neurologist providing care for children at Oregon Health & Science University and Shriners Children's Portland. She was born and raised in Portland, though she trained at Stanford and the Children's Hospital Philadelphia before returning home. She enjoys caring for children with a variety of neurologic differences, but is especially interested in treating children with tone and movement disorders, such as spasticity and dystonia, which commonly occur in cerebral palsy. She really enjoys working with her colleagues in orthopedics, neurosurgery, physical therapy and occupational therapy to figure out how best to help a child. She considers treatments such as medications, botulinum toxin injections, the intrathecal baclofen pump, selective dorsal rhizotomy and deep brain stimulation. Her other interests are in pediatric stroke and neurodevelopment. Outside of work, Dr. Wilson is either spending time with her husband and their two boys or trail running.
