We believe that all children with refractory epilepsy deserve a second opinion at an epilepsy center. If you bring your child to the University of Chicago Medicine Comer Children's Hospital, we will work with your referring neurologist and/or your child’s pediatrician to review diagnosis and treatment, and we will offer tests and treatments that may not be available at your community hospital.
Some of the questions we will address are:
- Have your child's medications been given adequate time to work?
- Have the appropriate medications for your child’s seizure disorder been tried?
- Have other treatment options been explained or explored when or in case medications fail?
