Seizure evaluation to facilitate treatment

Epilepsy is a neurological disorder characterized by seizures resulting from abnormal electrical activity in the brain. The disease affects more than 2 million Americans. For most of those people, seizures may be successfully controlled through medication, surgery or other treatments.

The Epilepsy Monitoring Unit at Ellis Hospital provides care for patients of all ages – children and adults. We diagnose different types of seizures and non-epileptic events and quickly develop a personalized treatment plan that might range from adjustment of medications to admission to the hospital, depending on a patient’s needs.

When outpatient monitoring is an option, ambulatory EEG monitoring is available - convenient for pediatric and adolescent patients, as well as those who prefer to be at home during testing.

Talk with your doctor about a referral to Ellis for your diagnostic testing needs.
