We are grateful for our small but mighty community; your health and wellbeing is our number one priority. This includes not only the parents, children, and adults who had epilepsy surgery in childhood, but also our staff, volunteers, donors, and the team of clinicians and researchers who have provided us with guidance since our inception.
COVID-19 is on everyone’s minds, and we are committed to sharing ongoing information, updates, and answers to key questions. With our advocacy partners the Epilepsy Foundation, the Child Neurology Society, and DEE-P Connections, we will be closely monitoring COVID-19 and will update this website with relevant information as best as possible.
This page, and all information on our website, including comments from experts, are informational only and do not constitute medical opinion or advice. You should contact your child’s neurologist or neurosurgeon if you have any questions about COVID19 and your child.
The phrase “epilepsy surgery” describes many different types of surgical procedures which remove, disconnect, stimulate, or destroy part of the brain. When considering the questions below, keep in mind your child’s unique outcomes and challenges.
If you submitted a question and it is not addressed below, it means we are still working on finding expert commentary to address it. These questions serve as guidance only – you should always contact your child’s neurologist or neurosurgeon if you have specific questions about your child.
