Pediatrics

There are nearly half a million children in the United States with active epilepsy. If your child is one of them or suffers from undiagnosed seizures, finding the right treatment early on increases his or her chances of leading a normal life. Goryeb Children’s Hospital has a Level 4 Epilepsy Center – the highest designation achievable – that offers all of the latest treatments, including medications, Ketogenic diets, neurosurgery and clinical trials. Sometimes epilepsy is caused by a brain tumor, in which case, we’ll refer you to our multidisciplinary team of pediatric brain and spine tumor specialists. They’re trained in a variety of neurosurgical procedures, including minimally invasive techniques that shorten recovery times. Learn more about pediatric epilepsy and brain and spine tumors >
