Epilepsy Treatment

Expert epilepsy treatment at Henry Ford

At Henry Ford’s Epilepsy Center, we are committed to helping you manage your epilepsy. Our goal is to stop seizures from occurring. We offer a wide variety of treatment options that include:

  • Medications: Anti-seizure medication can control most patients' seizures. Henry Ford participates in the newest anti-seizure medication trials and ongoing pharmaceutical drug trials for experimental and established medical therapies. Learn more about our epilepsy research.
  • Surgery: Doctors may recommend surgery to remove a small amount of brain tissue that might be causing your seizures. The Henry Ford team has the largest epilepsy surgical practice in the state of Michigan. Learn more about epilepsy surgery.
  • Neurostimulation therapies: When medication is not effective and surgical intervention is not an option, Henry Ford offers the latest, innovative neurostimulation epilepsy treatments, including vagus nerve stimulation (VNS). This treatment involves the surgical implantation of a medical device just beneath the collarbone that delivers electrical impulses to the vagus nerve to reduce seizures.
