The treatment of epilepsy continues to change and we want to make sure you are aware of the latest treatment options to

control your seizures.

This website was developed to ensure that individuals living with epilepsy have the most up to date information regarding the treatment of intractable seizures.

We believe that knowledge is power and want to empower you to ask the right questions and seek right doctors.
