Epilepsy Treatment

Once an epilepsy diagnosis is made, we offer the most advanced treatment options available. For more than a decade, our team has been involved in research related to every epilepsy treatment approved in the United States to date, including a number of drug and intravenous therapies, and vagus nerve stimulation (VNS) therapy.

View a webinar on surgical options for treating Epilepsy with Dr. Nitin Tandon.

Treatment Options

Because every case is different, our commitment to research offers each patient the most appropriate treatment available, including:

  • Drug therapy
  • Corpus callosotomy
  • Focal cortical resection
  • Hemispherectomy
  • Ketogenic diet
  • Laser ablation
  • Lobectomy
  • Vagus nerve stimulation (VNS)

Vagal Nerve Stimulation & Epilepsy Surgery

The Mischer Neuroscience Institute was the first in the region to perform VNS implantation and is the leading program in the United States, performing the largest number of epilepsy surgeries on pediatric and adult patients in Houston.

Counseling

But treating the condition is just one piece of the problem. At the Mischer Neuroscience Institute, we go beyond the diagnosis and treatment of epilepsy by counseling patients in learning to cope with their diagnosis.

Specialized counselors are on staff to ensure that recently diagnosed patients have the emotional support they need, and Child Life Specialists address the specific needs of our pediatric patients and their families.
