Comprehensive Epilepsy Services

Surgical procedures for intractable epilepsy, including vagus nerve stimulation, brain mapping, resection of lesions causing seizures, and temporal lobectomy are offered.

Adult and pediatric patients with seizure disorders are monitored in an epilepsy monitoring unit under the supervision of specially trained neurologists. A weekly conference is held to discuss patients with epileptic disorders and to select possible surgical candidates.
