Epilepsy and Seizure Disorder Care at Nuvance Health: Why Choose Us?
Many patients receive care from experienced specialists in epilepsy care. The team includes fellowship-trained epileptologists who can consult when appropriate. Highlights of our program include:
Your evaluation may include advanced imaging technology (3 Tesla magnetic resonance imaging) that provides high-resolution images of the brain. Nuvance Health is also one of the few programs in the region offering inpatient video-EEG testing. This advanced test helps us evaluate complex forms of epilepsy and whether treatments are working.
We tailor therapies for patients with complex needs. For example, older adults and pregnant women may respond differently to epilepsy medications. Regular monitoring helps us ensure you are on the correct medication and dose, and that side effects are bearable.
Epilepsy research at Nuvance Health often involves clinical trials that test promising new medications and care techniques. If you are eligible for a trial and wish to participate, we explain if you are a candidate and how a clinical trial may help you.
Seizure detection devices
If you experience severe seizures, we may recommend this type of device, which is worn on your wrist. The device alerts your loved one’s cell phone if you experience a seizure episode, so they can help you.
