About Our Program
You might feel scared—even trapped—waiting for your next seizure to occur, not knowing the circumstances that might surround it. It is a feeling voiced by many of our patients.
At the Barrow Epilepsy Program, we understand that the first step to alleviating these fears is getting you concrete answers about your seizures. Uncovering the cause of your epilepsy is the first step in creating a treatment plan that can put you at ease and make your life easier.
To that end, the core of our clinical program is made up of a collaborative team of experienced epileptologists and an advanced epilepsy monitoring unit. By monitoring your seizures as they happen using specialized equipment, our epilepsy specialists can create a customized treatment plan for you that may include epilepsy medication, surgical procedures, or a combination of both.
We realize that the process of finding the optimal treatment for your epilepsy can take longer than you would like. At the Barrow Epilepsy Program, we hold weekly meetings with all of our epilepsy specialists in which your progress is tracked and discussed to make sure you are getting the right treatment at the right time.
Our Epilepsy Program has received accreditation as a Level 4 Comprehensive Epilepsy Center from the National Association of Epilepsy Centers.
