The Pediatric Epilepsy Program is part of the UW Health's Comprehensive Epilepsy Program that features specialized epilepsy care for patients of all ages.
 
We offer a broad range of expertise to children with epilepsy and their families, treating the entire spectrum of epilepsy patients - from children who have experienced their first seizure to those whose epilepsy has progressed to a more difficult stage. Our resources are designed to help children with epilepsy live active, productive lives.
