Lexi’s Story

Cross Country Care for Seizures

Meet Lexi. She and her family came to us from Illinois. They were looking for the “best of the best” to treat her brain tumor which was causing epileptic seizures called auras. That’s why they came to Phoenix Children’s.

The doctors at Barrow Neurological Institute at Phoenix Children’s were able to perform laser ablation to remove the tumor. This is her story.

Get more information about laser ablation. To make an appointment with the Barrow at Phoenix Children’s Epilepsy Program, call 602-933-0468 or email
