Houston Pediatric Epilepsy Specialist Achieves Board Certification

Houston, Katy, Sugar Land, Cypress, San Antonio, Seguin & South Texas served by independent pediatric epileptologist with fast-track access. Dr. Rotenberg is one of a select few physicians nationwide double boarded in epilepsy and sleep medicine.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

PRLog (Press Release) - Jan. 10, 2014 - HOUSTON -- Texas Pediatric Specialists & Texas Medical & Sleep Specialists proudly announce that Dr Joshua Rotenberg has achieved subspecialty board certification in Epilepsy in the first-year of the specialty’s existence. He is one of very few child neurologists in the world to achieve double certification in sleep and epilepsy.

Epileptology is a specialty of pediatric neurology focusing on infants, children and adolescents with all types of convulsions, epileptic seizures and seizure disorders.

“Epilepsy is a common illness that extends beyond the seizures,” said Rotenberg. “As a specialist with a general pediatrics background, I monitor the broader experience - sleep, nutrition, development, pubertal issues, academics...Access, education and patient-oriented care are the keys to best outcomes.”

According to the American Epilepsy Foundation, 10 percent of Americans have a seizure in their lifetime, including all types of convulsions and febrile seizures. By age twenty, 1 percent of children, teens and young adults suffer from epilepsy.

The American Board of Psychiatry & Neurology (ABPN) first offered subspecialty certification in Epilepsy this year to identify physicians properly trained and experienced in treating epilepsy. In the final step of board certification, Dr. Rotenberg is among the few neurologists nation-wide who passed an examination evaluating proficiency in electroencephalography or EEG, pathophysiology, genetics, diagnosis and treatment of seizure disorders.
