Epilepsy is one of the most common neurologic conditions, with about one in 100 people living with seizures.
Fortunately, doctors and researchers have made great advances in its diagnosis and treatment, bringing a brighter future to both patients and their families.
If you experience seizures, getting them under control can change your life. SEBMF collaborates with other affiliate hospitals and doctors in the Sutter Health network to provide comprehensive neuroscience services including brain surgery, EEG monitoring for epilepsy, brain stimulators to prevent seizures and stereotactic radiosurgery (SRS).
There are many causes for seizures, and neurologists at Sutter East Bay Medical Foundation will help you identify the source of your epilepsy so that we can treat it as accurately as possible.
We offer the latest technology, including Wada testing and functional mapping imaging, to monitor and assess the exact nature of your epilepsy or seizure. We provide a range of treatment options to improve seizure control, including:
- EEG monitoring for epilepsy
- Medication management
- Surgery and advanced treatment — If you don’t respond well enough to medications, we offer surgical therapies, including brain resection, the NeuroPace neurotransmitter and the vagus nerve stimulator. Expert neurosurgeons at the California Pacific Medical Center in San Francisco team with us to provide these services.
Some of our locations also participate in epilepsy research studies, offering you access to the most advanced neuroscience technology and treatment available. We directly apply new laboratory findings to clinical use and facilitate patient participation in appropriate clinical trials and testing.
