Epilepsy is a central nervous system disorder in which nerve cell activity in the brain becomes disrupted, causing seizures or periods of unusual behavior, sensations and, sometimes, loss of consciousness. Seizure symptoms can vary widely. Some people with epilepsy simply stare blankly for a few seconds during a seizure, while others repeatedly twitch their arms or legs.
Medications are typically the first line of treatment for patients with epilepsy. In addition, our team has expertise in nonmedication management, including vagus nerve stimulator implantation and management.
