Pediatric Epilepsy Center

The best care

In collaboration with Hackensack University Medical Center, our group is a pioneer in developing techniques now used to diagnose and treat children with epilepsy. We collaborate with a comprehensive specialized epilepsy center accredited by the National Association of Epilepsy Centers (NAEC) as a Level 4 epilepsy center. As the highest-level center, we have access to the professional expertise and facilities to provide the most complex medical and surgical evaluation and treatment for children with epilepsy. Our center provides care for children with epilepsy and seizure disorders.
