The Multidisciplinary Approach that Sets OhioHealth Apart

Our epileptologists work collaboratively with neurologists, neurosurgeons and neuropsychologists in finding the best treatment for you, including medications, brain surgery and vagus nerve stimulation.

We work closely with your neurologist to help manage and monitor your seizures with medications.

If epileptic brain surgery becomes a treatment option, our epileptologists collaborate with OhioHealth neurosurgeons to determine if it is feasible and safe. This includes non-invasive and/or invasive electroencephalography (EEG) monitoring and evaluation and cortical stimulation and mapping for localization.

Post-surgery, we collaborate with referring neurologists to discuss next steps in the patient's care and provide continued management, if needed.

If vagus nerve stimulation becomes a treatment option, once the device has been implanted, we work closely with your neurologist to monitor your response and manage the levels of stimulation.

Pregnancy: Our epileptologists co-follow epilepsy patients who are pregnant or want to become pregnant with the program's maternal-fetal medicine specialist. Our program provides:

  • patient consultations with maternal-fetal medicine and epilepsy specialists
  • coordinated care with obstetrics
  • management of seizure medications in this high-risk condition

Psychology and Psychiatry Services : We consult with OhioHealth neuropsychologists and psychiatrists who provide diagnostic testing for the evaluation and treatment of intractable seizures. We also partner with the OhioHealth Behavioral Health team in instances where there's a need to treat depression and other psychiatric conditions.

And also if you want to:

  • Determine if the patient is a surgery candidate.
