Pediatric Epilepsy Center

Pediatric Epilepsy Center

Designated as a Level 4 Epilepsy Center by the National Association of Epilepsy Centers, we provide the highest level of treatment for the most complex cases of pediatric epilepsy.

Children’s Health℠ is dedicated to making life better for children afflicted with complex conditions that require optimal care – such as epilepsy. We’ve established a comprehensive center designed to meet your child’s needs and address your parental concerns.

Epilepsy is a neurological condition that affects your child’s neurons (nerve cells), causing these brain information carriers to fire unexpectedly, which can lead to seizures.This disorder also can affect your entire family. That’s why we’ve invested so much time, effort and resources toward epilepsy treatment and management. Our comprehensive Epilepsy Center offers the largest regional pediatric epilepsy program.
