What Is Neurostimulation? Who Can Be Helped By Stimulation Therapy?
In about 30-40% of people with epilepsy, medications do not control their seizures. Other treatment options used to help control seizures include surgery, dietary therapy, and neurostimulation devices.
Neurostimulation devices vary in how they are placed in the body and the way they work. Join us for a webinar on Tuesday, November 6, 2018, to learn about neurostimulation as a treatment for drug resistant epilepsy. Hear from people who have personal experience with neurostimulation as a therapy to help control their seizures. We will review:
Different types of neurostimulation devices,
