Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Tuxhorn "Dr Tuxhorn provides expert clinical consultations and second opinions.

I practice in a comfortable, unhurried and empathetic setting. Patients needs and goals form the basis of the encounter.

I believe in the value of integrated and multimodal therapy to achieve best outcomes.

Medical treatment goals will include finding suitable drug efficiency for the individual patient.

Surgical options for curing epilepsy are explored early in collaboration with level IV epilepsy centers in Cleveland.

I educate about newer and adjunctive therapies including the ketogenic diet, vagal nerve stimulation and life style modification.

I collaborate and communicate closely with your referring pediatrician, family physician and general neurologist to address psychosocial needs with appropriate therapies and supporting resources."
