Transition for Teens Clinic
Our Transition for Teens Clinic provides continuity of care as adolescent epilepsy patients transition to adult care. Comprised of both adult and pediatric epileptologists, this program creates an easy and seamless transition of care to teen patients entering adulthood that have continuing medical issues. This special program addresses the unique needs and concerns of adolescents and ensures a smooth transition of specialized epilepsy care from child to adult services.
New Onset Seizure Clinic
We also offer special programs for children experiencing seizures for the first time. Our New Onset Seizure Clinic provides expert diagnostic services, treatment and follow-up care. Diagnostic testing helps us to accurately confirm the diagnosis, identify the cause of seizures and initiate appropriate treatment with medications. We also advise parents and patients on safety issues and behaviors that may reduce the risk for further seizures.
With access to a vast number of specialists and surgeons, as well as the dedicated Epilepsy Monitoring Unit and Pediatric Intensive Care Unit (PICU), our center offers the most advanced techniques for diagnosing, managing and treating epilepsy in infants and children.
