Our goal for every patient is that they lead a normal life without seizures and without side effects. While this goal cannot be achieved in all cases, a systematic approach that recognizes that epilepsy must be treated continuously over many years can lead to a dramatic improvement in the quality of life for just about everyone. MINCEP has learned that without a precise seizure and epilepsy syndrome diagnosis, choosing a proper treatment plan becomes a matter of chance. The correct choice of medical or surgical therapy is necessary but not sufficient. A proper treatment plan must also address the psychological, social, educational and developmental issues that patients with seizures face as well.
