Treating epilepsy can be challenging since each child responds differently to various kinds of treatment. For some, medication is effective; others find seizure relief through a ketogenic diet; and others eventually need surgery to achieve seizure freedom. Our team will help your family understand the treatment options and what might work best for your child.
Our multidisciplinary team includes a clinical pharmacist with extensive knowledge and experience in treating children with epilepsy.
Specialized diets can help some children achieve seizure control when anti-seizure medications are not effective.
Ketogenic and Modified Atkins Diets
The goal of surgery is to dramatically reduce the severity and frequency of seizures and, when possible, eliminate them altogether.
Our clinical psychologists provide assessments, brief treatments, family education and, if needed, referrals for outpatient psychological care.
