Magdalena Ogrodnik

Pediatric Neurologist

Magdalena discovered her passion for pediatric neurology during her internship at the Evelina London Hospital, where she observed specialists working with movement disorders. This experience influenced her future career choices and interests. After completing a course in the treatment of spasticity with botulinum toxin under ultrasound control at the Cardiff University, she joined the residency program in pediatric neurology at The Children’s Memorial Health Institute (pol. Pomnik – Centrum Zdrowia Dziecka Institute – IPCZD) in 2015.

 

In 2016, she embarked on a research internship at one of the world’s top medical schools, the University of Michigan in the United States. There, she gained unique experience in multiple sclerosis (MS), associated spasticity, and working with MS patients. Deepening her knowledge in this area enriched her clinical practice and fueled her passion for understanding and managing patients with complex neurological conditions.

 

Returning to Poland and working at IPCZD allowed her to apply the accumulated knowledge in practice. Her commitment to acquiring additional skills in pediatric neurological diseases remained steadfast, leading to the completion of the EMG/NCS course in 2021. Participation in international conferences and specialized courses, including a course on neuromuscular diseases at the University of Boston, as well as involvement in the activities of the European Academy of Neurology as a representative of pediatric neurology residents, provided her with an international perspective in medical practice and comprehensive patient care. This has enabled her to represent a personalized medicine approach based on modern treatment methods.

 

In her personal life, she is a mother of three boys. Besides her family role, she loves spending time on long walks in the charming Mazovian forests. Her passion also includes experimenting with new culinary recipes, exploring flavors, and sharing them with loved ones.
