Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Gallagher "The first principle of care for patients with epilepsy is to strive to achieve seizure freedom with no side effects and enable them to engage in all activities with no restrictions.  This goal can often be achieved with optimal medical and, if appropriate, surgical therapy.  The second principle is to understand that patients with epilepsy often experience other neurological issues in addition to seizures which require treatment to maximize their quality of life.  Therefore, for patients with epilepsy, I strive to assist them with these other conditions including headaches/migraines, depression, anxiety, attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD usually involves a referral to a mental health provider), sleep disorders (often a referral to our sleep center), and cognitive/memory issues (often involves optimization of their seizure medications, screening by one of our neuropsychologists, and, if appropriate, referral to Vanderbilt's comprehensive rehabilitation center)."
