To provide high-quality, multi-disciplinary care to children suffering with epilepsy based on cutting-edge diagnostics and the latest innovations in medical and surgical therapy.
To accurately diagnose epilepsy, recommend a plan of treatment, and apply a tailored approach to each patient focused on decreasing seizure burden and enhancing quality of life.
Epilepsy is a common neurologic ailment which affects 50 million people globally. Unfortunately, according to the Institute of Medicine, less than 1% of those affected receive the kind of multi-specialty care that their complex condition deserves. Here at NJPNI, we take a team approach to diagnosing and treating pediatric epilepsy. Combining the clinical and seizure history with the EEG and MRI, neuropsychological evaluations, and advanced imaging diagnostics (e.g. PET, SPECT, MEG/MSI), our expert team devises a holistic management plan that is carefully tailored to the needs of the individual patient.
