Stereoelectroencephalography (SEEG) Pinpoints the Source of Epileptic Seizures

Stereoelectroencephalography (SEEG) is an invasive surgical procedure that is used to identify areas of the brain where epileptic seizures originate.

During SEEG, doctors place electrodes in targeted brain areas, which are then monitored to precisely locate the seizure source.

When the seizure onset is localized, a surgical resection and a good seizure outcome may be possible.

In March 2009, Cleveland Clinic launched the first SEEG program in North America.

If you or a loved one has found no medical or surgical option for uncontrollable epileptic seizures, you may want to know more about this promising technique.
