Seizures are electrical disruptions in the brain that can cause a wide range of symptoms. There are many different types of seizures, including those related to epilepsy, and specialized neurologists and neurosurgeons who can help. Our experts know the latest treatment options, provide thorough evaluations, and will diagnose and effectively treat your particular problem.
Treatment options for epilepsy and sudden seizures include medication and leading-edge interventions at the recommendation of your physicians - such as vagal nerve stimulation, medication, surgery, a ketogenic diet, and deep brain stimulation. To diagnose your seizure disorder, a neurological exam, blood tests, EEG, CT scan, MRI, PET scan, or neuropsychological tests may be performed.
Our fellowship-trained epileptologists strive to develop a personal rapport with each patient. Our physicians feel that by learning from their patients, they can provide better care and build trusting, rewarding relationships.
