Neurology is the branch of medicine that deals with the brain and nervous system. Neurologists work in many different areas, but a pediatric neurologist often focuses on pediatric neurology seizures and pediatric epilepsy. Pediatric neurologists also treat seizures, headaches, migraines, abnormal movements, concussions, traumatic brain injuries, neuromuscular disorders, ADD/ADHD, strokes, tics, tremors, Tourette’s Syndrome, and other neurological disorders. We may also be part of a care team for complex multi-system disorders.
A seizure refers to unusual electrical activity in the brain. This electrical activity interrupts the brain’s normal functioning. Seizures can range in impact from hardly noticeable to severely disrupting. Seizures can occur on their own or as the result of other conditions. They can be genetic but may also be brought on by trauma. People may have isolated seizures; for example, high fevers are associated with seizures in children. When a person has multiple seizures without an immediate external cause, the diagnosis is epilepsy.
By working with a neurologist, you can help manage your child’s epilepsy. An epilepsy specialist is trained to diagnose epilepsy in children, investigate other possible causes of seizures, and handle age-appropriate methods for managing the seizures. Because children’s bodies are different from adults, they often metabolize medications differently. In addition, not all adult medicines are approved for use in pediatric patients. That is why it is important to have a pediatric epileptologist treat your child’s seizures.
