Children’s Level 4 Pediatric Epilepsy Center uses combination of new technologies to help patients with epilepsy
Dr. Nitin Agarwal, an epileptologist, and Dr. Joseph Petronio, a neurosurgeon, used a combination of new technologies - stereoelectroencephalography (sEEG) and the Rosa robot - to eliminate seizures for 10-year-old epilepsy patient Nicole.
Patients with refractory epilepsy - which means they have failed two seizure medications - should be referred to Level 4 Epilepsy Center for evaluation and surgical consideration. As part of the surgical evaluation Children’s Minnesota neurosurgeons and Minnesota Epilesy Group epileptologists use stereoelectroencephalography (SEEG) to identify the source of seizures within a child’s brain. SEEG is less invasive than the more widely used subdural electrode technique.
