Pediatric Epilepsy Clinical Program

Augusta University Epilepsy Department News

The Georgia Health Sciences University Pediatric Epilepsy Service seeks to serve the needs of children with epilepsy and their families. For many children with epilepsy, seizures are completely controlled with drug therapy. For others, however, uncontrolled or poorly controlled seizures persist with the usual 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 of 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. (see Treatment Services)

The National Association of Epilepsy Centers recognizes the Augusta University Comprehensive Epilepsy Program as a Level IV center, the highest designation given. Patients and their families benefit from the most up-to-date technology available. Health professionals in neurology, neurosurgery, neuropsychology, nursing and EEG technology provide a full range of diagnostic services, medical treatments and surgical procedures.
