Pediatric epilepsy care at Dell Children's
A multidisciplinary approach to care
The Dell Children’s Comprehensive Pediatric Epilepsy Center has been recognized as a Level 4 Epilepsy Center by the National Association of Epilepsy. This designation is reserved for programs that meet the highest standards for providing the most complex forms of intensive neurodiagnostic monitoring as well as more extensive medical, neuropsychological, and psychosocial treatment.
The Dell Children’s Comprehensive Pediatric Epilepsy Center care team excels in the medical, dietary, and surgical management of children and adolescents with epilepsy. Our team is also capable of addressing the full range of neurological, neuropsychological, and psychosocial needs in children and adolescents with seizures and epilepsy. We understand epilepsy is complex and there are many different types of epilepsy that can develop at any age, which is why we do not limit our care to medications or surgery but may recommend a combination of treatment approaches unique to your child’s situation.
Patients are cared for by a dedicated multidisciplinary care team, meaning your child will benefit from the expertise of multiple specialists across a variety of disciplines. Our board-certified and fellowship-trained pediatric epileptologists have extensive experience treating conditions of the central nervous system in children of all ages and work alongside a team of pediatric neuroscience experts, including neurologists, neurosurgeons, neuropsychologists, neuro-ophthalmologists, physician assistants, physical medicine and rehabilitation specialists, physiatrists, hospitalists, anesthesiologists, nurses, advanced practice providers, EEG/MEG technologists, social workers, psychologists, child life specialists, dietitians, physical and occupational therapists, pharmacists, and more, providing unparalleled care for patients and their families every step of the way. We also collaborate closely with referring physicians, pediatricians, and other partners in the community to schedule and coordinate any additional care services your child may need.
