Children's Epilepsy Surgery Service
About The Children’s Epilepsy Surgery Service (CESS)
Since 2012, the NHS has made epilepsy surgery a nationally commissioned service and in England there are four centres designated as part of the Children’s Epilepsy Surgery Service (CESS). The recognised centres are Birmingham, Bristol, Liverpool/Manchester, and Great Ormond Street/Kings College London.
The Team involved in CESS at Birmingham Children’s Hospital
The Epilepsy Team is multi-disciplinary and includes neurologists, neurosurgeons, neuropsychiatrists, neuropsychologists, developmental specialists, clinical neurophysiologists, EEG physiologists, nurse specialists, nurses, neuroradiologists, social workers, speech and language therapists, occupational therapists, play specialists, physiotherapists, clinical coordinator and administrative staff.
Birmingham Children’s Hospital has been conducting Epilepsy Surgery for many years and it is with that wealth of experience that we have been chosen to be one of the four national centres.
