Epilepsy Diagnosis and Evaluation

For More Information

To create your personalized epilepsy treatment plan, we need to learn as much as possible about your seizures, determine their cause, and identify the seizure focus -- the area in your brain where seizures begin. After you call us to make an appointment, we’ll do the leg work of tracking down your relevant medical records. Then one of our epileptologists will review your information and decide whether your first step is meeting with a doctor or being admitted to our specialized epilepsy monitoring unit. There are two main phases of evaluation: initial and surgical.
