Leading Epilepsy Treatment at Rose
At Rose Medical Center, our neurosciences program provides leading treatment for epilepsy. A neurological disorder, epilepsy is marked by chronic recurrent seizures associated with abnormal electrical activity in the brain. We offer an interdisciplinary team of experts, world-class facilities and specialized expertise in diagnosing, treating and managing epilepsy symptoms.
A Difficult Diagnosis
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, more than 5 million adults and children in the U.S. have been diagnosed with epilepsy or another seizure disorder. But the disorder is often difficult to diagnose because patients don't always seek treatment for seizures, and when they do, they may not be able to accurately describe their symptoms. If you or a loved one is suspected of having seizures, we can help you find the source of these symptoms and rule out more serious conditions.
At Rose, we utilize advanced technology to evaluate and diagnose epilepsy. Our epilepsy monitoring unit (EMU) provides continuous video monitoring, private rooms and individualized care to patients with epilepsy symptoms. The epilepsy monitoring unit at Rose is staffed by a 24/7 collaborative care team and includes state-of-the-art equipment for customized monitoring and evaluation of brainwave activity.
If a patient is diagnosed with epilepsy, our team works to develop an individualized treatment plan to address each patient's unique symptoms and guide them through comprehensive management strategies.
