  2. If we’re talking about the same thing, the Responsive Nerve Stimulator (RNS) will do just the opposite.

    RNS uses an implanted device to help prevent seizures before they begin, similar to how a pacemaker detects and treats abnormal heart rhythms.

    Patients treated with RNS continue to take epilepsy medication, but their seizures may be better controlled than with medication alone.

    Because no brain tissue is removed, RNS poses less risk to the patient than other surgical treatments. Unlike conventional epilepsy surgery, RNS is reversible and the implant can be removed at any time.
