Epilepsy and Seizures

  • Epilepsy and Pregnancy
    Epilepsy and the medications to treat it can have affect the mother, the pregnancy, and the fetus and newborn. Fortunately, most women are able to have a healthy pregnancy and baby.
  • Epilepsy and Seizures
    Epilepsy is one of the most common disorders of the nervous system and affects people of all ages, races, and ethnic backgrounds.
  • Evaluation of First-Time Seizure
    When your brain's electrical system doesn't work properly, a seizure occurs. Some factors can make those electrical impulses fire erratically and without reason, essentially resulting in a "short" in your brain that causes a seizure.
  • Medical Management of Epilepsy
    Epilepsy is a condition that causes seizures, temporary reactions that often include twitching and convulsions. But epilepsy can usually be managed well through medication and other treatments.
  • Refractory Epilepsy
    About one-third of people with epilepsy will eventually develop refractory epilepsy. This means that medicines don't work well, or at all, to control the seizures.
  • Status Epilepticus
    A seizure that lasts at least 30 minutes is called status epilepticus, or a prolonged seizure. This is a medical emergency that may lead to brain damage or death.
