Epilepsy surgery may be recommended if your child experiences seizures that cannot be controlled with medications. We understand that you may be concerned about your child undergoing brain surgery. You can rest assured knowing that Duke Health is designated as a Level 4 Epilepsy Center by the National Association of Epilepsy Centers. That means our epilepsy center is staffed by pediatric neurosurgeons who have the experience and expertise to perform advanced operations that may reduce or eliminate your child’s seizures. Some of these procedures are only available at a handful of comprehensive epilepsy centers like ours. Our goal is always to achieve the best possible outcome for your child.
