Open, ongoing and formal communication between every member of the care team is an essential component of the Epilepsy program.
The epilepsy team at Conemaugh meets to review your progress. The "Epilepsy Board" can include neurologists, registered nurses, and other health care professionals who are involved in your care. They work in conjunction with a board-certified epileptologist to evaluate what treatment options would be best for you.
- Medical management through the use of prescription medication
- Vagus Nerve Stimulation (VNS), which uses technology similar to a heart pacemaker to help reduce seizures and decrease medication
Once a diagnosis has been confirmed, our Epilepsy team will develop a treatment plan that best meets the need of each patient.
