After countless visits to several neurologists, Sam’s mom was devastated to hit a plateau in his treatment and felt that more could be done to help her son living with epilepsy. He had been hospitalized and repeatedly was having seizures, including some that were silent or not observable. The team at NJPNI presented epileptic surgery as a means to give Sam a chance at freedom from his seizures and to reduce his burden. It was incredibly encouraging for Sam’s mom to know that something else could in fact be done, which restored her sense of hope. Since having his surgery, Sam is now able to speak more words than he ever has, which is an improvement that many patients notice. Sam has continued to be a happy kid and a pleasure to know!
