Would you recommend Rochester best Mayo Facility for Epilepsy?

Posted by wls @wls, Dec 24, 2019

We live in California and see there is an Epilepsy Center in Scottsdale, AZ but I do see Rochester mentioned quite a bit. Would love thoughts on best Mayo Facility to use for my son who is 22 and has epilepsy since he was an infant.

Good afternoon,
Of course any seizure is one too many. I believe you’re talking about Absent seizures when you say “mini seizure.”
How often does he experience Absences?
How long do they last?
Is Keppra the only medication he is taking?
Has he been on other seizure medications?
Did Keppra ever decrease the Absences?
If I had my choice of where to go I would definitely choose the Mayo Clinic Epilepsy Center which is a level 4 center and has been rated number one in the U.S.
Best of luck to your son and family,
Jake

Hi again,
I just wanted to fill you in a little regarding @boston2mayo. His son was having up to a dozen tonic clonic seizures a day. His son is now seizure & medication free because of the treatment received at Mayo.
Take care,
Jake
