Comprehensive Epilepsy Monitoring and Treatment

Epilepsy, a brain condition that makes your child more susceptible to seizures, can have a profound impact on your child’s life. At Baptist, we understand how difficult epilepsy can be for your child and family — it’s why we’re always looking for more efficient and innovative ways to diagnose and treat the condition.

We offer at-home, 24-hour EEG monitoring. This technique enables your child to be monitored for seizures from home while sleeping, which may reduce the need for repeat hospital visits. We also offer a variety of other treatment options, including antiepileptic drugs, special diets and vagal nerve stimulator therapy.

Compassionate, family-centered care that’s sensitive to the unique needs of children with epilepsy. That’s Baptist Care.
