Innovative Approaches to Epilepsy
Our epilepsy services include an outpatient clinic, the EEG laboratory and the inpatient epilepsy monitoring unit.
Our EEG Laboratory performs electroencephalographic (EEG) recordings on outpatients and inpatients with seizures, spells and a variety of other conditions. The EEG, which records your brain’s electrical activity, can provide evidence of epilepsy by demonstrating signs of electrical irritability.
Our four-bed epilepsy-monitoring unit is dedicated to confirming a diagnosis of epilepsy and pinpointing seizure activity and origin. Video and EEG recordings of seizure activity can be made 24 hours a day.
