Since 2008, Cleveland Clinic Epilepsy Center has been among a select number of institutions in the world with MEG (magnetoencephalography), a technique used to better identify epileptic sources in patients in whom the area of the brain causing the seizure would otherwise be difficult to identify.
More than 100 adult patients with medication-resistant epilepsy undergo surgical procedures annually, making Cleveland Clinic’s Surgical Epilepsy program one of the foremost programs of its kind in the world.
Cleveland Clinic was one of the first medical centers in the country to perform intracranial brain mapping in patients with epilepsy using electrical stimulation.
Advancements of this technique, using three-dimensional computer images of the brain, help physicians determine the precise location of seizure activity.
This technology, along with such procedures as vagus nerve stimulation, offers hope for our young patients struggling with pediatric epilepsy.
Our goal is to help you or your loved one manage this disease in order to enjoy a fuller, more productive life.
