Mayo Clinic epilepsy care teams use advanced technology, including subtraction ictal SPECT coregistered to MRI (SISCOM), electroencephalography, computerized tomography, magnetic resonance imaging, positron emission tomography and other tests to accurately diagnose epilepsy.

With state-of-the-art research and laboratory facilities, Mayo Clinic experts are constantly seeking medical discoveries and innovations for people with epilepsy. Today's research teams are studying potential treatments, including new medications and new surgical options. A variety of clinical trials and other clinical studies may be available to you at Mayo Clinic.

Mayo Clinic has expertise in the management and treatment of epilepsy, including complex epilepsy syndromes such as Dravet and Lennox-Gastaut syndromes, and epilepsy requiring advanced surgical and neuromodulation approaches. Treatment options at Mayo Clinic to eliminate seizures or reduce the frequency and intensity of seizures in children and adults include medications, vagus nerve stimulation, surgery, awake brain surgery, ketogenic diet and more.

Mayo Clinic is one of the leading deep brain stimulation implantation sites in the country — and one of the few facilities to have offered this advanced procedure prior to Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approval. Deep brain stimulation can significantly reduce seizures in people whose epilepsy is difficult to treat. Experts at Mayo Clinic have performed deep brain stimulation for a decade with good effectiveness, so they're able to offer you the highest levels of safety and experience.
