New Onset Epilepsy Clinic

The New Onset Epilepsy Clinic at Lurie Children’s addresses the need for prompt appointments for children who have had their first seizure or a new diagnosis of epilepsy.

Clinic visits will include education for patients and families about seizures and epilepsy, in addition to treatment, diagnostic testing (video EEG), and follow up care. Children requiring ongoing care will continue to be followed through the clinic.
