Epilepsy Care at the Cutting Edge

  • Due to concerns with COVID-19, UTHealth Neurosciences will reschedule the Epilepsy Care at the Cutting Edge Symposium. Please check back soon for updates.

“Epilepsy Care at the Cutting Edge” is an educational symposium whose aim is to educate health care professionals from all areas of epilepsy care—neurologists, neurosurgeons, advanced practitioners, nurses, pharmacists, scientists, first responders and others who are involved in the treatment of patients with epilepsy.

This year’s course will expand attendees’ knowledge and understanding of epilepsy and will demonstrate how to offer top quality epilepsy care to patients. The course will be held in the Texas Medical Center, and will include a day of focus on neurology and a day of focus on neurosurgery.

Some of the many exciting highlights include:

  • An exploration of new technologies in the management of intractable epilepsy
  • A lecture and discussion around SUDEP
  • A patient experience session, where attendees will hear a patient’s perspective on their journey
    through epilepsy diagnosis and treatment
  • An interactive lab that presents cases to simulate different issues and surgical solutions

Details to come. For more information, please email neuro.events@uth.tmc.edu.
