Explore This Program
The Epilepsy Program at Mass General for Children serves patients with seizures and related disorders. The service sees patients in all phases of their illness, from assessment after an initial event in our First Seizure Unit through evaluation of refractory seizure disorders in patients who have not been easily controlled.
A comprehensive epilepsy surgery program complements the latest medical therapy, including investigational new drugs, as required. Additional services include a comprehensive wellness program, second opinions, review of neuropathological and radiographic materials, neurogenetic assessment, ketogenic diet program and psychiatric evaluation.
State-of-the-art neurophysiology and neuroradiological diagnostic facilities supplement expert consultation. To assist in accurate diagnosis and treatment, inpatient and ambulatory long-term video-EEG monitoring using digital technology with computer assisted event detection, sophisticated MRI imaging and spectroscopy, functional imaging using MRI and PET scanning, and detailed neuropsychological testing are available.
