Katherine’s Story

Laser Focused on Removing Seizures

Meet Katherine. She was diagnosed with epilepsy just before 5th grade and was averaging about one seizure per week. By the time she entered high school, her parents were afraid she wouldn’t be able to attend college, get her driver’s license – key life milestones - until they heard about a new MRI-guided laser ablation procedure being offered at Barrow Neurological Institute at Phoenix Children’s.

Watch Katherine's story! Barrow at Phoenix Children's is recognized by the National Association of Epilepsy Centers (NAEC) as a Level 4 epilepsy center. Level 4 epilepsy centers have the professional expertise and facilities to provide the highest-level medical and surgical evaluation and treatment for patients with complex epilepsy.
