Anna Lecticia Ribeiro Pinto | Professional History
Research and clinical interests are in epilepsy during the first two years of life, considering all aspects of the heterogeneous conditions. BCH has the largest Ketogenic Diet (KD) program in New England. The multidisciplinary KD program has experience with initiation of KD during newborn and infancy. Treatment of epileptic events is often challenging, and there is evidence to support use of ketogenic diet, improving both seizure burden and quality of life.
BCH has a dedicated SWS clinic with focus on understanding and improving the problem of seizures, migraines and neurologic impairment in Sturge-Weber syndrome. The center is recognized to the SWF Clinical Care Network, NIH Brain Vascular Malformation Consortium (BVMC) and Vascular Biology at BCH.
