Seizure Clinic

Seizure ClinicThe Seizure Clinics at Memorial Hermann Mischer Neuroscience Associates offer comprehensive care for patients with new onset seizures, as well as those who have been diagnosed with epilepsy. Led by a team of experienced neurologists, the goal is to help patients gain control of their seizures and regain their desired quality of life by applying the most comprehensive diagnostic and treatment methods available.

These Clinics are located across the Greater Houston area, giving patients another access point to highly specialized treatment and diagnosis capabilities outside of the bustling Texas Medical Center. Clinics are located in Katy, the Greater Heights area, Southwest Houston, The Woodlands and Bellaire.

Epilepsy and Seizure Disorders

Epilepsy is a chronic neurological disorder characterized by recurring disruptions in brain activity that can cause unprovoked and sometimes unpredictable seizures, loss of consciousness and unusual behavior. It is one of the most common neurological disorders and can have potentially devastating cognitive, physical, psychological and social consequences if not properly treated.

The severity of epilepsy can vary from person to person. Genetics, brain trauma, structural abnormalities, stroke and brain tumor rank among the top underlying causes, though the onset of epilepsy in some cases may remain unknown. An identifiable cause of the condition can play a critical role in determining the most effective treatment.

Collaboration with Referring Physicians

Throughout the evaluation and treatment process, referring physicians are kept informed about patient progress, and continued communication about each referred patient is encouraged.

Direct Access to Complex Care

Seizure Clinic patients who require an elevated level of care have direct access to the Texas Comprehensive Epilepsy Program at Mischer Neuroscience Institute in the Texas Medical Center. In those instances, Seizure Clinic physicians work closely with neurologists at the Texas Comprehensive Epilepsy Program, headed by Jeremy Slater, M.D., and with neurosurgeon Nitin Tandon, M.D., to ensure an uninterrupted continuum of care. The close affiliation with this program, a national leader in epilepsy diagnosis and treatment among all ages in the southwestern United States, facilitates the delivery of high quality care close to home.

Part of the McGovern Medical School at UTHealth, the Texas Comprehensive Epilepsy Program draws from its extensive epilepsy research, the latest technology, and the combined expertise of board-certified neurologists and neurosurgeons with subspecialty training and experience in treating patients with epilepsy. The program is an NAEC-accredited Level 4 epilepsy center and boasts a 13-bed epilepsy monitoring unit with the unique capability of simultaneously performing electroencephalography and polysomnography. The team diagnoses and treats more than 1,800 pediatric and adult patients each year for seizure disorders and performs innovative surgical procedures including stereo electroencephalography (SEEG) and laser ablation.
