Customized Epilepsy Treatment Plans
Our expert team will create a step-by-step treatment plan designed specifically for you. After your initial visit, we will handle your medication needs and seizure control following the initial visit.
Best-in-Class Surgical Care
If you’re preparing for epilepsy surgery, we work with your neurologist before and after the procedure to monitor your health and assist with medication changes and refills, as well as problems with seizure control.
Non-Surgical Epilepsy Treatment Options
If surgery isn’t the right option for you, we’ll work to determine the right treatment options for your specific seizure disorder.
A seizure is a sign that something needs care, and our first step is to determine the cause of the seizure. Whether you’ve lived with epilepsy for years or it’s newly developed, we have the tools and expertise to pinpoint the cause of seizures and determine the best treatment.
We want you to live a seizure-free life. We’re here to help you find the treatment options that work for you, and to help monitor and manage your condition so you can focus on living your best life.
For our adult patients, treatment plans may include:
- Anti-seizure devices like NeuroPace RNS® and CURRY neuroimaging (EEG)
- Dietary changes
- Epilepsy medication
- Epilepsy surgery
Seeing your child experience epilepsy can trigger feelings of helplessness and fear. We seek to empower families by providing answers and guidance, as well as the assurance that comes with state-of-the-art technology and innovative treatment options.
Our all-digital, video electroencephalogram (EEG) makes it possible for our nurses, technicians and pediatric specialists to monitor your child’s seizure activity 24/7, in real time. This leads to a more accurate epilepsy diagnosis and more effective treatment.
