Epilepsy surgery saves lives

New research shows that children with drug-resistant seizures live longer after epilepsy surgery. The longer your child has seizures, the more devastating the consequences can be. The sooner your child has a surgical evaluation, the sooner you can understand all available treatment options.

It’s time to get informed.

Is epilepsy surgery right for your child?

Neurosurgery is a big topic. It’s easy to get overwhelmed. But you’ve come to the right place. We’re here to help you understand the risks and benefits of all of your options so you can make an informed decision about whether surgery is the best decision for your child.


Stop searching. Start Learning.

You need to understand the pros and cons of all your options when you’re considering brain surgery for your child. In fact, you’ll need to make a few choices:

  • Whether or not to operate
  • Which surgery to investigate
  • Which surgeon to work with

Don’t worry. We’ll walk you through it.


You’re not alone

Parenting a medically complex child can be lonely. And treating seizures can be costly – especially if you have to travel for a surgical evaluation. We provide emotional and financial support for families before, during, and after surgery.


You can make a difference

When so much of your situation is out of your control, it feels great to make a difference in someone else’s life. You can help by sharing your story, providing support to another parent, or making a financial gift.
