Advanced Epilepsy Testing, Diagnosis, and Treatment

Our center uses the most advanced technology for testing and diagnosing epilepsy.

Our goal is to stop your seizures, with medicine being the first line of treatment.

Our team of experts works to make a clear-cut diagnosis and tailor treatment to control your seizures and reduce side effects.

Allow some time to determine if your medications are working. You’ll meet with one of our epileptologists — a neurologist trained in treating epilepsy — if follow-up care shows you need more than an optimized drug plan. They will assess you and decide if surgery is a good option based on the latest standards of care.

We offer the full spectrum of modern surgical techniques for epilepsy, including less invasive and robotic-assisted surgeries.
