Why are our Workups so Different than in Standard Neurology Clinics?
At the Neurology Center for Epilepsy and Seizures, we seek to be all-encompassing when it comes to epilepsy and seizures. That’s why we do our best to create comprehensive workups for any of our patients who may have an epileptic condition.
We understand these workups are much more thorough and comprehensive than workups in standard general neurology clinics. This is because we are epileptologists and have unique training in epilepsy to identify certain symptoms that may be important for us to learn more about. Standard neurologists do not have this kind of training and do not have the experience to create this kind of comprehensive workup.
Our Different Epileptic Workups
We understand that routine 30-minute EEG studies are insufficient for us to get key data to know for certain if our patients have an underlying network issue with the brain. Especially when we see patients who may be developing epilepsy. For those patients, we need long-term EEG studies to provide us with the information and time to see for certain if there are underlying network abnormalities of the brain.
Epilepsy as a disease is hard to pin down. It’s difficult to understand how it works and diagnose, especially in the early stages of the disease. It requires lots of diagnostic testing and proper, thorough note-taking in order to get a full idea of the diagnosis.
We all know the brain is the most complicated organ of our body. And with the most complex organ of our body comes the complex symptoms and the complex way symptoms appear for those who suffer from epilepsy.
