VNS Therapy™ is Safe for Children
VNS Therapy is safe and effective for treating drug-resistant epilepsy in children as young as 4 years old with partial onset seizures.
Early Treatment is Critical
Every day, 30 children will begin to have seizures that cannot be controlled with medication alone. Consequently, there are more than 10,000 new cases of drug-resistant epilepsy in children every year.
Uncontrolled seizures in children can have an impact on development and memory long term and can increase the risk of ER visits, hospitalizations and sudden unexpected death in epilepsy. It's important to treat drug-resistant epilepsy as early as possible.
