Meeting in the Middle
Tracey Drake had been experiencing near-daily, debilitating seizures for 15 years that had significantly affected her life and left her unable to work. "I had tried every epilepsy medication out there," she says, "you name it, I'd tried it. Nothing worked." When her Weill Cornell Medicine neurologist Dr. Steven Karceski suggested she consult neurosurgeon Dr. Theodore Schwartz to see if she would be a good candidate for a new implant device, Tracey jumped at the chance. "I was a little nervous about it, since the procedure was so new," she says. "But mostly I was excited that finally there was a possibility of getting back to a normal life."
Watch Tracey's story to learn more about how Weill Cornell Medicine's Epilepsy program can provide cutting-edge treatments when other options have failed. "For patients like Tracey, who have seizures that medication can't control, this is a very promising new option," Dr. Schwartz says. "It feels great to have a procedure like this become available, and then see how it can give someone like Tracey her life back."
