From new-onset seizures to seizures that are difficult to treat, the Epilepsy Program at Child Neurology Consultants of Austin is here to improve your child’s quality of life by achieving the best seizure control possible. Our priority is providing patients and their families the most convenient, comfortable, and positive experience while receiving expert care from highly experienced neurologists and epileptologists.
Although seizures should be addressed with urgency, visits to an emergency room are inconvenient and often unnecessary. Our providers are available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week for emergencies.
What Sets Us Apart
As one of the largest child neurology practices in the country, our providers have deep connections with local and national associations focused on epilepsy and seizure-disorder care, management, and research including the Epilepsy Foundation, the Child Neurology Society, and Tuberous Sclerosis Alliance.
Our providers constantly investigate treatments and resources to improve seizure management for our patients. This includes offering patients access to ongoing research trials.
Child Neurology Consultants collaborated with St. David’s North Austin Medical Center to expand the Level IV Epilepsy Center to include Pediatrics. That program is led by Dr. Karen Keough and Dr. Lindsay Elton, who also serves as Medical Director for the hospital’s Child Neurology Program.
We also partner with providers at Dell Children’s Medical Center and Texas Children’s Hospital to access specialized testing such as MEG (magnetoencephalography) and functional MRI.
Several of our physicians serve as faculty at Texas A&M College of Medicine — helping to train the next generation of doctors.
