“It’s not brain surgery.” And it doesn’t have to be.
There are a host of epilepsy procedures that are minimally invasive.
This article is not for those with a weak stomach. Because Stevens-Johnson Syndrome is an ugly and sometimes deadly disease.
But if you are on Dilantin or Lamictal, I urge you to read this information.
I never had a clue what neuropsychology was all about. Although it sounded like a good idea.
Then a while ago, I had an assessment. (Mercifully, it was the two-hour test and not the 8-hour version.)

The question was, did my deficit in memory come from my history of seizures, my previous concussions (one of which was only a month ago) or even age itself? (I thought to myself, geeze, I’m only 63!)
Here’s basically what happened…
There’s a whole treasure trove of clinical trials information now available as a free service of the National Institutes of Health, developed by the National Library of Medicine (NLM).
ClinicalTrials.gov is a web-based resource that provides patients, family members, health care professionals, researchers, and the public with easy access to information on publicly and privately supported clinical studies on a wide range of diseases and conditions.
Presently, there are 131,167 studies with locations in 179 countries, including the U.S. Studies are easy to search for by topic and location.
Below is a compilation by website forum members who have had positive personal experiences with docs over the years.
This list is based on recommendations and, of course, is purely subjective. But it might be helpful for anyone looking for a good Neurologist…Epileptologist…Neurosurgeon…or Pediatric Doctor.

What if you could predict an oncoming seizure in time for you stop it? Or even prevent it?
That day may be coming sooner than you think, thanks to these seven new technologies.
You’ll learn what they are, how they work and how far along they are.
There’s a lot of new and exciting research going on– all over the world – about predicting and preventing seizures.
The latest research combines scientists who excel in engineering, math, physics and technology in a dedicated collaborative effort.
And even though most the actual technology isn’t here yet, the future holds promise for us all.
