Patient Care

Minimally invasive laser surgery promising for patients with focal epilepsy
The majority of patients with focal, medication-resistant epilepsy who have undergone minimally invasive laser surgery at Mayo Clinic in the past two years are seizure-free.


Neuroimaging can help predict epilepsy outcomes
A major challenge in treating children with epilepsy is determining whether and when to intervene surgically. Mayo Clinic research indicates that neuroimaging abnormalities can play a key role in guiding these decisions.

Patients with autoimmune disorders may respond to immunosuppressant therapies
Accumulating evidence indicates that autoimmune factors may play a bigger role in seizure disorders than previously suspected, often without full features of limbic encephalitis.

Study identifies relationships among family history, genetic factors and different types of epileptic seizures
The Epilepsy Phenome/Genome Project (EPGP) is examining the pathophysiology and clinical expression of idiopathic epileptic syndromes. All Mayo Clinic campuses are among the 27 centers participating in this international study.
