Speak with our team about whether surgery is an option for your child.
Childhood-onset epilepsy affects 1 percent of children worldwide and 25 to 30 percent of these will have medically intractable epilepsy, continuing to have seizures despite using two or more antiseizure medications.
The Epilepsy Center at Nationwide Children’s offers the most advanced approach to medically intractable epilepsy in children and adolescents. Through our patient-centered focus, our epileptologists work with families to explain available options, how the processes for the options work and the associated risks and benefits of epilepsy surgery. The epilepsy care team is devoted to providing the best option for seizure management for each patient and works closely with the primary care provider to coordinate care for patients.
Further reinforcing our commitment to providing the highest quality of care to children diagnosed with epilepsy, Nationwide Children’s is accredited as a Level 4 epilepsy center by the National Association of Epilepsy Centers (NAEC)—a designation reserved for programs offering the highest level of comprehensive and specialized care.Speak with our Team
