DC Epilepsy Diagnosis & Treatment
We Treat More Than 2000 Patients With Epilepsy Every Year
Epilepsy has many possible causes, and can be related to other diseases. Seizures can result from brain infections, tumors, abnormal blood vessels, head trauma, and stroke. Still, in many individuals, no clear cause of seizures can be determined.
A multi-disciplinary staff distinguishes The Epilepsy Center from other facilities in the region. Each year, more than 2,000 patients with epilepsy and other seizure disorders travel from around the corner and around the world for comprehensive evaluation and treatment by members of our medical team.
Neurologists, neuroradiologists, neurosurgeons, neuropsychiatrists, nurses, rehabilitation specialists and social workers collaborate to develop a specific treatment program for each patient, whether medication or surgery is indicated. We use electroencephalography (EEG) as well, to measure brain waves that tell us about conditions as diverse as seizures and sleep disorders. We offer outpatient EEG as well as inpatient video-EEG monitoring.
