Epilepsy Experts in Nashville

As a national leader in neuroscience, TriStar Skyline offers specialized epilepsy monitoring units (EMUs) designed to evaluate, diagnose, and treat seizures in patients of all ages.

Treatment for Seizure Disorders

Patients who suffer from seizures, which are difficult to diagnose and manage, are those most likely to be admitted to an EMU. Patients who are being considered for seizure surgery will also be admitted to an EMU for monitoring to identify the location in the brain where the seizures begin.

The EMUs are specially designed for 24/7 audio and video monitoring to determine type and location of seizure activity.

Our board-certified epileptologist and neurologists are experts in seizures and seizure disorders. Together with our highly skilled staff, we will work with you and your loved ones to determine the appropriate treatment to control seizures and manage symptoms.
