Epilepsy treatment options offer
The neurologists and neurosurgeons at Medical City Healthcare offer comprehensive epilepsy services. Treatment options provided include:
- Epilepsy surgery
- Vagus nerve stimulation
Technology such as video and electroencephalogram (EEG) monitoring are used to record brain activity and observe behavioral changes to determine the best treatment plan for you. Epilepsy monitoring is often useful if your epilepsy is severe, not responding to treatment or has unknown causes.
The epilepsy monitoring process may also involves the following tests:
- Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI)
- Positron emission tomography (PET)
- Single-photon emission computed tomography (SPECT)
- Neuropsychological testing
Neurosurgery for epilepsy
If you are a candidate for neurosurgery, the epilepsy team may first perform a craniotomy to pinpoint exactly where seizure activity is taking place in your brain. Types of neurosurgery offered for epilepsy include:
- Lobectomy—Removes a portion or all of the brain lobe
- Hemispherectomy—Removes all or most of one hemisphere of the brain
- Corpus colostomy—Severs the corpus callosum to lessen the severity of seizures
Pediatric epilepsy services
For younger patients, Medical City Healthcare provides specialized pediatric epilepsy diagnostics and monitoring services at Medical City Children's Hospital. Our goal is to provide compassionate care and create an epilepsy treatment plan tailored to your child's needs.
