Services we offer at our epilepsy centers

With experienced, multidisciplinary teams of seizure specialists and a range of advanced resources, you are always skillfully taken care of at our hospitals. Using advanced epilepsy monitoring technology to provide information, we create a treatment plan that specifically addresses your health need.

Diagnostics and monitoring for seizures

We integrate leading-edge technology and equipment into every phase of care while you are experiencing epilepsy. Some of our advanced diagnostic and monitoring resources include:

  • Ambulatory electroencephalogram (EEG) monitoring — This service allows you to be monitored in the comfort of your own home. By being monitored in your routine environment, it can increase the likelihood of capturing an active event. Recorded data is analyzed by our on-staff epileptologists to establish a baseline of epilepsy activity, which can then be used to justify inpatient intensive screening to third-party insurance companies.
  • Long-term epilepsy monitoring unit — Rooms in these units are fully furnished private hospital suites equipped with the latest EEG video capabilities to provide round-the-clock screening of epilepsy activity. This helps us chart your condition and treatment progress.
  • Presurgical diagnostic testing — This allows us to understand more about your condition so our treatments can be more effective. It includes medical imaging, such as electroencephalograms (EEGs) and functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI). It also includes exams, such as neuropsychological evaluations, Wada testing, intracranial electrode evaluation and electrical brain mapping.

Seizures as symptoms of epilepsy

An estimated 3.4 million adults and children in the U.S. have epilepsy, also known as "seizure disorder." It is a common chronic neurological disorder, or movement disorder. During an epilepsy "attack," nerve cell activity in the brain becomes interrupted, causing unpredictable, recurring seizures, periods of odd behavior or, at times, loss of consciousness. Some seizures may not seem very concerning, but even mild seizures need to be treated immediately because they may occur during activities such as driving, swimming or holding a child.

It is important to understand that seizures are symptoms of epilepsy, but may also be caused by other medical issues. An accurate diagnosis is critical to getting safe, effective treatment for any and all seizure-related conditions.
