Epilepsy Center at Baptist Medical Center South
Recurring seizures or epilepsy impacts about 2.5 million Americans. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, epilepsy is a chronic neurological condition characterized by recurrent seizures and can be caused by many different conditions that affect a person’s brain.
The Epilepsy Center at Baptist Medical Center South offers individuals in the River Region who suffer from seizures a place they can be monitored and examined close to home. In the monitoring unit, our staff uses both EEG (electroencephalography) equipment to monitor brain activity and video cameras to record body movements during a seizure. This approach gives us a much greater understanding of seizures. The monitoring not only allows us to diagnose a seizure problem accurately, but also to design the best possible treatment plan. Patients are monitored in the unit continuously.
