Stephen C. Karceski, M.D.
For many years, I have met with adolescents and adults whose seizures have been difficult to control with medications. I have always been interested in newer treatments, including epilepsy surgery and devices. I believe that new technologies will lead to new treatments for epilepsy. For many people with seizures, the best treatment may be a combination of medication plus one of these newer therapies.
