Pediatric Epilepsy Program
The Pediatric Epilepsy Program specializes in the diagnosis, evaluation and treatment of infants, children and adolescents with seizures and epilepsy. For each child, we strive to understand why seizures have developed and then design a personalized, comprehensive treatment plan that best controls seizures with the fewest possible side effects. As an accredited level 4 pediatric epilepsy center, we have been recognized by the National Association of Epilepsy Centers as having the expertise and facilities to provide the highest-level medical and surgical evaluation and treatment for patients with epilepsy. Our goal is to help children with epilepsy and their families enjoy lives unaffected by seizures.
AJ’s life was relatively uncomplicated until age 14, when he began to experience unpredictable seizures and received a life-changing diagnosis of epilepsy. Thanks to the combination of a small, battery-powered device surgically implanted into his brain and an oral medication, he is now seizure-free.
