Epilepsy affects more than 3 million Americans of every age. In fact, nearly
500 new cases are diagnosed each day in the United States.
Freedom from seizures and/or side effects is possible for many patients
through drug therapy or minimally invasive surgery. When seizures cannot
be controlled with medication alone, Hoag offers the latest techniques
in surgical intervention. In fact, Hoag has one of only two MRI/PET instruments
being used on the west coast.
The Hoag Epilepsy Program’s mission is to improve each patient’s
overall quality of life by providing quality care tailored to individual
needs. Hoag Epilepsy Program offers comprehensive treatment through a
patient centered, integrated approach.
