Leading Epilepsy Diagnosis & Treatment in the Southwest
Welcome to Memorial Hermann Mischer Neurosciences Epilepsy Program, specializing in the diagnosis and treatment of epilepsy and seizures in patients of all ages.
Epilepsy is a neurological condition characterized by recurrent unprovoked seizures that can be caused by different conditions that affect a person’s brain. It is the second most common neurological disorder after stroke, affecting over three million Americans. Many people have not been able to control their seizures with medication and often feel they must accept this quality of life without knowing there are other treatment options.
