First-Time Seizure Clinic

Less time from call to care for first-time seizures in kids

New onset or first-time seizures occur in 5-10% of all children. These can be attributed to multiple different causes, and often do not require further treatment. However, they are a significant source of concern for parents and health care providers alike.

Boys Town's First-Time Seizure Clinic is here to provide quick and accurate diagnosis and management of first-time seizures in children. Here, children are evaluated by the region's leaders in pediatric neurology and epilepsy care. Should your child need further diagnostic testing, you will find it all right here at Boys Town National Research Hospital.

Who can be seen at the First-Time Seizure Clinic?

Any child who has had his or her first seizure within the last month can be seen in this clinic. The Clinic is designed to help identify the cause of the child's first seizure and help the family establish a management or treatment plan if necessary. The child should meet the following criteria for this clinic:

  • Had his/her first seizure within the last month, or is waiting on a referral to a neurologist following a visit to an Emergency Room, urgent care clinic, or pediatrician's office
  • Has NOT yet seen a neurologist or diagnosed with epilepsy or seizure disorder

If your child is currently waiting for a neurology visit for his or her first seizure, the First-Time Seizure Clinic may be an option to have your child evaluated sooner.

If your child has been diagnosed with epilepsy, seizure disorder or other neurological conditions and you are looking to schedule a visit with one of our pediatric neurologists, please contact Boys Town Pediatric Neuroscience at 531-355-7420. We can see your child will less time from call to care.
