In partnership with Dr. Deepal Shah, our Epilepsy Board-Certified Texas Brain & Spine Institute Neurologist, we recently opened the region's first Epilepsy Monitoring Unit (EMU). An EMU offers specialists the opportunity to monitor patients more consistently with Continuous Electro-Encephalography (EEG) and video-EEG, than they can in a traditional outpatient setting. The unit offers several treatments, including intensive, 24/7 monitoring of patients with a possible or confirmed epilepsy diagnosis and help understand causes for seizure activity. Dr. Jason Hoover, one of our neurosurgeons at TBSI, will also be involved in this program to provide surgical continuum of care to epilepsy patients, when appropriate.
