The Brain Recovery Project: Childhood Epilepsy Surgery Foundation

Each year, 45,000 children in the U.S. are diagnosed with epilepsy. For approximately 40% of these children, the seizures are resistant to anti-epileptic drugs. If the seizures can be localized, brain surgery to stop the seizures - which can sometimes include removing up to half the brain - is performed to prevent the catastrophic consequences of drug-resistant epilepsy.

Unfortunately, very little is known about the functional effects of many of these procedures - that is, what they do beyond seizure control to a child's long-term development.

Our mission is simple: We help children who have had brain surgery to stop seizures reach their full potential. We will achieve our mission by funding scientific research that addresses neuroplasticity and cortical changes following epilepsy surgery, and using such studies to develop “best practices” programs that target comprehensive recovery and rehabilitation. We also help educate parents and professionals on the risks of drug-resistant seizures, brain surgeries to stop them, and their outcomes, host informative scientific and family conferences to help parents and professionals better understand the impact of various brain surgeries to stop seizures across the lifespan, and will soon launch the world's first pediatric epilepsy surgery registry to drive collaborative research on functional outcomes of these procedures. Our focus is not only on each child’s physical recovery after surgery, but also on the most effective means to attain cognitive and behavioral success.
