The Highest Level of Pediatric Epilepsy Care
Epilepsy affects approximately 470,000 children across the nation. For many families, treating epilepsy is about managing health day-to-day. As your child grows, you want a team who can address how their condition responds to the different stages of life — while minimizing, and in some cases eliminating, epileptic occurrences. With the pediatric epilepsy team at Orlando Health Arnold Palmer Hospital for Children, you have a partner who offers greater hope and opportunities for life-changing outcomes. Using the most advanced technology and solutions available, our team controls seizures and the side effects of epilepsy.
Our epilepsy program, part of the Leon Pediatric Neuroscience Center of Excellence, is designated as a Level 4 Epilepsy Center (the highest rating) by the National Association of Epilepsy Centers (NAEC). This means we’re able care for all conditions on the epilepsy spectrum.
A Team Approach for Complete Care
Our expert staff will work with your family to determine the most effective treatment – from medication therapy to advanced surgical options – to maximize your child’s quality of life. This will include collaboration from a team of pediatric neurologists, epileptologists, neurosurgeons, nurse practitioners, ketogenic dietary nutritionists and neuropsychologists to find a plan that fits your child’s unique epilepsy needs.
In addition, your family also has access to integrated health services and leading-edge technology to help manage your child’s care, such as:
- Dedicated pediatric intensive care team
- Blood tests for genetic-metabolic panels
- Child Life services
- Video Electroencephalograms (EEGs) — for detection of seizure onset
- Diagnostic Imaging
- Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scans
- Functional MRIs for language, motor and vision
- Nuclear medicine (SPECT and PET Scans)
- Genetic epilepsy assessments
- Neuromodulation (VNS)
- Neuroimmunology evaluations and treatments
- Pediatric Anesthesiologists

“The doctors really and truly have the best interest of my child, not what’s going to be best for the hospital, but what’s going to best for the child.”
— Matt, father of Owen, an epilepsy surgery patient
