Epilepsy Services

You may also want to consult us for a second opinion—or even a third—as epilepsy is a complex disorder to diagnose and many patients have difficulty establishing a definitive diagnosis. At MedStar Georgetown, our doctors use a variety of diagnostic techniques, based on research and best practices, to create a holistic picture of your seizures.

Epilepsy Treatment

Because the most essential phase in treating epilepsy is an accurate diagnosis, we use a variety of diagnostic techniques to determine if you have epilepsy. Our studies include the use of the Epilepsy Monitoring Unit, as well as the innovative methods our doctors use for interpreting the tests. This collaborative approach makes all the difference in the treatment plans we create for our patients.
