Our hospitals use the latest treatments, which may include medication, surgery, or both. Your care team will tailor a treatment plan that addresses your needs. Our goal is to find therapies that help you manage your symptoms and maximize your quality of life. Medications can effectively control seizures for two-thirds of people with epilepsy. Your physician will work closely with you to determine the right medication and dosage for you.
When medication is not enough to manage your symptoms, we may recommend more testing, such as advanced monitoring in our Epilepsy Monitoring Unit. This sophisticated testing helps us understand which part of the brain causes your seizures, so we can choose a surgical approach that is more likely to be effective.
Our physicians are highly experienced in performing the latest epilepsy treatments, including innovative neuromodulation procedures such as vagus nerve stimulation surgery and NeuroPace. See what makes these treatments so effective by learning more about what is epilepsy.
