Epilepsy, a brain disorder that causes people to have recurrent seizures, blackouts and convulsions, often has many possible causes. We have the tools and expertise to diagnose epilepsy accurately, and get you on the right treatment plan.

Causes of Epilepsy

Epilepsy may stem from illness, brain injury and abnormal brain development. Yet in many cases, the specific cause is unknown. In our practice, we rely on multiple approaches including brain scans and other tests, in order to diagnose epilepsy.

While there is no official ‘cure’ for epilepsy, evidence has shown that medicines are effective at controlling seizures for most patients. Other patients may be good candidates for surgery or implanted devices to control their seizures.

What Brings on a Seizure?

Seizures happen when clusters of nerve cells, or neurons, in the brain send out the wrong signals. People experiencing seizures may have violent muscle spasms or lose consciousness. In addition, some patients have reported abnormal sensations, emotions or behaviors while in seizure.

While no two epileptic patients experience the exact same symptoms and reactions, we have the breadth of experience to treat a wide array of patients suffering from mild to severe epilepsy.
