Get to know Pediatric Neurologist Dr. Michael D. Frost, who serves patients in Saint Paul, Minnesota.

Dr. Frost, a board-certified pediatric neurologist, is licensed to practice medicine in Arizona, Colorado, Minnesota, North Dakota, and South Dakota. He is currently the Medical Director of Pediatric Inpatient Epilepsy Services and the Epilepsy Monitoring Unit at Children’s Minnesota Saint Paul Hospital as well as the Associate Medical Director of Neurosciences with the Children’s Minnesota Saint Paul Hospital.

Professionally speaking, he has also been a part of the founding team at Minnesota Epilepsy Group in Saint Paul since 1991. Staff members draw on a vast range of expertise and decades of combined experience to treat patients with epilepsy for whom traditional modes of treatment have proven unsuccessful. 

A member of the Child Neurology Society, the doctor is a Fellow of the American Academy of Neurology (FAAN), a Fellow of the American Academy of Pediatrics (FAAP), and a Fellow of the American Epilepsy Society (FAES).

In regards to his educational background, Dr. Frost graduated with his medical degree from St. Louis University School of Medicine in 1975 and performed his residency in pediatrics at Children’s Mercy Hospital in Kansas City, Missouri in 1977. From there, he went on to complete his residency in child neurology in 1980 at the University of Colorado Health Sciences Center and Affiliated Hospitals in Denver.

Following his education, he attained board certification in epilepsy, neurology with special competency in child neurology, and clinical neurophysiology by the American Board of Psychiatry and Neurology, which is a not-for-profit corporation dedicated to promoting high-quality patient care for the public through the initial and continuing certification of psychiatrists and neurologists. In addition, he attained board certification in pediatrics by the American Board of Pediatrics, which is an independent and non-profit organization that serves as one of the 24 certifying boards of the American Board of Medical Specialties.

Among his current roles and responsibilities, Dr. Frost serves as the Medical Director of the Tuberous Sclerosis Complex Clinic Without Walls and is on the Professional Advisory Board for the Tuberous Sclerosis Alliance. He is also the Medical Director for Camp Oz (the only residential camp in Minnesota for children with epilepsy), an Attending Physician at Children’s Minnesota Hospital, as well as a Clinical Professor of Neurology at the University of Minnesota. His research interests include the use of new anticonvulsant medications, epilepsy surgery, and new treatments for tuberous sclerosis complex.

Pediatric neurology or child neurology refers to a specialized branch of medicine that deals with the diagnosis and management of neurological conditions in neonates (newborns), infants, children, and adolescents. The discipline of child neurology encompasses diseases and disorders of the spinal cord, brain, peripheral nervous system, autonomic nervous system, muscles, and blood vessels that affect individuals in these age groups. A pediatric neurologist is a doctor who treats children who have problems with their nervous system.
