Epilepsy is a neurological condition that affects the brain and is characterized by seizures. A seizure occurs when there is a large and synchronized level of abnormal electrical activity in the brain. There are many different types of seizures and while some result in several minutes of involuntary movements, others are hardly noticeable.
It is important for your neurologist to determine where in the brain the abnormal electrical activity is occurring. This helps Dr. Jochims better treat your epilepsy. Dr. Jochims, who completed a fellowship in seizure disorders, also has an experienced EEG tech who provides in-office and ambulatory EEG. More precise and accurate testing with a video EEG monitor may be necessary to further evaluate patients for epilepsy. NWC is the first and only clinic in Waukesha County to offer patients such sophisticated technology to diagnose and treat epilepsy.
