Epilepsy has many causes including tumors, strokes and brain damage from illness or injury; In many cases there may be no detectable cause. The Neuroscience Institute's Epilepsy Clinic has the resources to treat and diagnosis your disorder from focal to generalized seizures.
Specialists at the Epilepsy Clinic treat adults and adolescents. Our goal is to obtain the highest level of seizure control and functional ability for the patient with a seizure disorder. Our comprehensive team approach may include consultations with neurologists, neurosurgeons, and neuropsychologists, as well as various diagnostic tests (i.e. EEG, MRI, PET, SPECT and Wada, neurocognitive testing). Additionally, the center has a state-of-the-art EEG video-telemetry inpatient monitoring unit to aid in the diagnosis of seizure type and focus for optimal treatment of the patient. Treatments may include medication management, and in appropriate situations, surgical intervention.
