Epilepsy and seizure disorders are highly prevalent, with estimates of over three million Americans diagnosed with a seizure related disorder. 300,000 individuals annually experience their first seizure. The risk of brain damage accompanies every seizure. Therefore, early diagnosis and treatment of seizures is related to improved patient outcomes. To confirm an epilepsy diagnosis, a series of evaluations may be conducted by a neurologist/epileptologist, including extended EEG monitoring.
Florida Hospital Orlando provides early diagnosis of seizure disorders for adults and children. The Florida Hospital Seizure Monitoring units provide for 24/7 monitoring by an EEG technologist, using state of the art diagnostic equipment.
