For Adults with Epilepsy
Our epileptologists specializing in adult care are trained in neurology and epilepsy, as well as interpretation of EEG and epilepsy monitoring. In addition to diagnosis and care of isolated and new onset seizures, we specialize in challenging epilepsy situations.
We also provide care for patients with epilepsy complicated by other neurological conditions, such as stroke, brain injury, and brain tumors. As part of total patient care, we offer up-to-date epilepsy education and information regarding driving, employment, and safety.
Patients who have failed multiple seizure medications are reevaluated and offered the newest therapies available, including:
- Investigational seizure medications and devices
- Epilepsy surgery
- Dietary modification (see the ketogenic diet)
