Epilepsy occurs when the electrical signals in the brain misfire, causing temporary miscommunication between nerve cells. An individual who experiences recurrent seizures is thought to have epilepsy.
Epilepsy can occur at any age, but most new diagnoses are in children. According to the Centers for Disease Control, it’s estimated that approximately 470,000 children in the United States have the neurological condition.
At the Neuroscience Center, we diagnose and treat various types of epilepsy, including:
- Fever (febrile) convulsions (seizures in children with high fever)
- Generalized tonic clonic seizures
- Infantile spasm
- Mioclonic epilepsy
- Neonatal epilepsy
- Partial (focal) seizure
- Petit mal (absence) seizures
Experts in Neonatal Epilepsy
Our pediatric neurologists also have extensive experience diagnosing infants and young children with a wide range of neurological conditions, including neonatal epilepsy. In fact, we use some of the latest, most advanced equipment available to effectively diagnose neonatal epilepsy in children. We also provide comprehensive treatment and personalized follow-up to our neonatal and pediatric patients, enabling us to track their progress and development over time.
