Through treatment and compassionate support, Ascension’s epilepsy and seizure care team will help you understand and control your condition.

About Epilepsy and Seizure Care

Epilepsy is a neurological condition that can cause convulsions and moments of unconsciousness. If you — or your child — have had a seizure, you may be searching for answers and feeling uncertain. Ascension’s integrated team of epileptologists, nurse practitioners, radiologists and neuropsychologists is here to give you the clarity and support you need.

We’ll talk with you about your symptoms, get your medical history, and perform blood tests and neurological exams for a complete diagnosis. We have access to the newest medications and treatment options to help reduce future epileptic seizures. If an underlying cause, such as infection, is triggering the episodes, the right treatment may prevent them from reoccurring.

Our team will work with you throughout your journey and monitor your medication dosage regularly to help ensure you're living a healthy life.
