Epilepsy Care

Our nationally recognized Children's Epilepsy Center, located at Jeff Gordon's Children's Hospital, offers advanced epilepsy care and a pediatric epileptic monitoring unit (EMU). This is the only dedicated Level III EMU in the state.

Getting epilepsy care from our pediatric neurologists means your child is getting care from board-certified epileptologists specially trained in the latest diagnosis procedures and treatment options for your child. We offer highly specialized surgical options for epilepsy in children as well.

Pediatric neurosurgery

Our team of board-certified pediatric neurosurgeons offers a full suite of advanced neurosurgical care options, including:

  • Brain and spinal trauma treatment at the dedicated 24-hour pediatric emergency department and the Hemby Pediatric Trauma Institute at Levine Children's Hospital
  • Minimally invasive surgery, image-guided surgery and other advanced surgeries to treat brain and spine tumors, congenital conditions and vascular problems
  • Cortical mapping and vagal nerve stimulators to treat epilepsy
  • Brain and facial reconstructive surgery
  • Ventriculoperitoneal shunting surgery for babies with hydrocephalus (too much spinal fluid in the brain). This procedure helps drain extra spinal fluid.
