- Diagnosing the Cause of Seizures
When it comes to a sudden seizure, you want to know why it happened and, most importantly, if or when it will happen again. The neurologists at AdventHealth are here to provide a guiding light. By collaborating across disciplines, we’ll work to figure out what kind of seizures you’re having and the reason they're happening. Throughout our network of hospitals, we perform tests to diagnose the cause of your seizures, including:
- Blood Work
- EEG Test
- Imaging Tests, such as CT Scans, PET Scans, and MRIs
- Physical Exam
- Spinal Tap
Caring for your brain begins with easing your mind. That's why our neurology specialists will be with you at every step, making sure your concerns are addressed, your voice is heard, and all your questions are answered.
- Understanding Seizures and Epilepsy
One one hand, you are not unique — millions of Americans experience seizures every year. On the other hand, no one is just like you. The neurologists at AdventHealth take this into account when treating you, making sure to tailor your seizure disorder or epilepsy treatment to your specific condition and circumstance.
We often define two unprovoked seizures as epilepsy but, in many cases, the cause of your seizure may be unknown. Either way, we’ll take a multidisciplinary approach to diagnosing and treating your seizures. Seizures can be broken down into four main categories, including:
- Generalized Seizures, in Both Sides of the Brain
- Local, Focal, or Partial Seizures, in One Part of the Brain
- Non-Epileptic Seizures
- True Epilepsy
- Seizure and Epilepsy Treatment With Expertise and Compassion
Facing seizures, seizure disorders, and epilepsy takes courage. Caring for them takes heart. The neurology specialists at AdventHealth combine compassion and advanced solutions to help you feel more courageous in the face of your seizure disorder.
With proven expertise, the highly experienced neurologists within our network have access to leading-edge technologies, like the magnetoencephalography (MEG) brain mapping system, which helps us diagnose the cause of seizures so we can better treat the root of the problem. We’ll work with you to come up with a personalized seizure disorder care program that helps you channel your strength and move forward. Our epilepsy treatments include:
- Antiepileptic Medication, the Most Common and Effective Treatment
- Cognitive Treatment
- Diet Changes and Guidance
- Temporal Lobe Resection, to Remove the Small Part of the Brain Where Seizures Start
Epilepsy often feels like an unwelcome disruption. We're here to help smooth your way. In addition to treating your physical condition, we’ll help nourish your mind and spirit, connecting you with psychologists and support groups to lift your spirit and restore your confidence.
