Paediatric Epilepsy

Complex Epilepsy

For 70% of children with epilepsy, we are able to successfully control their seizures with medication.

If your child's seizures prove hard to control after trying 2 epilepsy medications, a referral to Bristol for evaluation under the epilepsy surgery team will be considered.

Another option could be the ketogenic diet. This diet needs to be supervised by a specialist dietician. Matthew's friends website has more information about the diet if it is something you would like to consider.
