Augusta University Pediatric Epilepsy Service
The Augusta University Pediatric Epilepsy Service seeks to serve the needs of children with epilepsy and their families through advanced care treatment options. For many children with epilepsy, seizures can be completely controlled with drug therapy. For others, however, seizures can remain uncontrolled or poorly controlled with traditional treatment. For these children, epilepsy presents a significant obstacle. Our aim is to help these children and families overcome this obstacle and to achieve their full potential.
If your child with epilepsy does not have satisfactory control over seizures, then our program may be able to help. Our goals are to reduce the number of seizures to the lowest level possible and to minimize the complications of treatment. Often, these goals can be achieved by a combination of various types of treatment. For some patients, Epilepsy Surgery is an effective option that minimizes the impact that epilepsy can have on a child’s life.
