Have you joined the Global Pediatric Epilepsy Surgery Registry?

The Global Pediatric Epilepsy Surgery registry is a research project that allows families to share their experiences with and without epilepsy surgery in childhood by completing a series of surveys. The data collected will be used to answer some of the most important questions about pediatric epilepsy surgery, such as:

  • What can a child do over time after epilepsy surgery?
  • What post-operative therapies and interventions are useful?
  • What are some unusual symptoms or medical issues that happen after epilepsy surgery that parents report but doctors may be unaware of?
  • What are the issues that concern parents?
  • What is the impact of epilepsy surgery on a child’s quality of life?
  • What surgical techniques work best and for whom?
