What is an Epileptologist?

An epileptologist is a neurologist who has received 1 to 3 years of additional training in epilepsy beyond that of a regular neurologist. Epileptologists have additional expertise in EEG interpretation, surgical evaluation, and video monitoring. Some epileptologists have training and research experience in the basic science of epilepsy. Dr. Rodgers-Neame has been trained as a clinical fellow in Epilepsy and Clinical Neurophysiology at Southern Illinois University, as a Neurologist at the University of South Florida and in Internal Medicine and neuroscience research at Washington University, St. Louis.

In our office, we have a state of the art EEG with Xltek digital equipment with seizure focus mapping so that we can provide printed copies of seizure foci and copies of seizure discharges so that patients and referring physicians can make them a part of their permanent medical record. Further information on electroencephalography and what it is for is available on WebMD's site
