The Pediatric Epilepsy Program studies and treats epilepsy and seizure disorders. The program is equipped with state-of-the-art technology for continuous electroencephalographic and video monitoring of seizures in infants and children. This facility represents one component of a comprehensive evaluation and treatment program for children with epilepsy. Recognizing that 6% of the pediatric population experiences at least one seizure in a lifetime, Pediatric Neurology is committed to understanding the nature of seizure disorders in children.
Our team of dedicated experts offers a multidisciplinary approach to care that integrates the expertise of colleagues in neurosurgery and diagnostic imaging to deliver leading-edge evaluation, diagnosis, and patient care to children with varying forms and degrees of seizure and epilepsy. Our Program provides intensive audiovisual and electroencephalography (EEG) monitoring for diagnosis and localization of the affected area, to tailor care for each patient.
Patients receive comprehensive inpatient and outpatient services, and a full range of medical and surgical treatment options, including ketogenic diet and vagus nerve stimulator programs for the treatment of children with complex epileptic conditions, as well as investigative therapies and approaches that are not widely available.
