About Stopping Childhood Seizures With Brain Surgery 2018-07-10T22:07:07+00:00

RISKS OF DRUG-RESISTANT SEIZURES

Drug-resistant seizures can be catastrophic to a child’s development, especially if they begin in infancy. Intractable epilepsy can cause development to freeze in time or regress significantly. Epilepsy surgery is no longer considered a last resort for children with refractory epilepsy, but there are risks associated with brain surgery, some which can be significant. We help you understand the risks and benefits of various brain surgeries to stop seizures so that you can make an informed decision about whether brain surgery is right for your child.

SPECIAL EDUCATION ADVOCACY

Individual education plan meetings can be complicated and challenging for parents and guardians of children after epilepsy surgery. We help you build your child's IEP meetings by providing you with a non-attorney advocate who understands how resective or disconnective epilepsy surgery may affect a child in the educational environment.
