More than three million Americans have been diagnosed with epilepsy. It can often be difficult to manage, and many patients continue to have seizures even after initial medical treatment. TMC's Level 3 Epilepsy Center offers an epilepsy specialist for adults and children along with neurosurgeons, who work together to control seizures.
TMC has both adult and pediatric epilepsy monitoring units, or EMUs, and is one of just two centers in the region that can admit patients for surgically placed devices for seizure monitoring. For appropriate patients, TMC offers vagal nerve stimulator placement and management, targeted cortical resection or temporal lobectomy.
