November is Epilepsy Awareness Month and New York Presbyterian Hospital has a press release out today featuring two neurosurgeons from our Epilepsy Center: Dr. Guy McKhann and Dr. Neil Feldstein.

In the release, “Coping with Epilepsy? Safer and Less Invasive Options Available For Patients,” Drs. McKhann and Feldstein are among a number of medical experts to detail the latest treatments for children and adults with epilepsy.

Here is an excerpt from the New York Presbyterian Hospital press release:

Rather than performing large operations to implant electrodes on the surface of the brain to record seizures, Dr. Neil Feldstein, director of Pediatric Neurosurgery and Dr. Guy McKhann, director of epilepsy and movement disorder surgery at NewYork-Presbyterian/Columbia are focused on a safer and less invasive technique of Stereo-EEG.

Through a 2 millimeter incision, several small electrodes are implanted in the skull to detect where the seizures arise in the brain. “The Stereo-EEG technique has completely changed how we approach many complex epilepsy patients, making their evaluation both safer and more accurate,” says Dr. Feldstein.
