The Comprehensive Epilepsy Center at Cincinnati Children's.

Improving Life for Children with Epilepsy

At the Comprehensive Epilepsy Center, we help children who are having seizures enjoy the best quality of life possible. This means minimizing their seizures, reducing medication side effects, addressing emotional and developmental concerns, and helping families better understand their child’s condition. If your child is experiencing seizures, our multidisciplinary team will be with you every step of the way.
