I am fortunate to be the director of HPN Comprehensive Epilepsy Center where we have a dedicated multidisciplinary team of epileptologist, adult and pediatric neurologists, neurosurgeon neuropsychologists and research team whose sole purpose is to improve the quality of life of patients with epilepsy and seizure disorders from all Hawaiian Islands and the Pacific Rim.
We specialize in helping patients who were told by other doctors that there is nothing else could be done or where the diagnosis is not clear. Our professionals are experts in many diverse areas, from new medication development and state of the art diagnostic procedures including overnight Long Term Video-EEG Epilepsy Monitoring Unit (EMU) to improve the cognitive and behavioral functions in patients with epilepsy, implantation, and programming of innovative neuro device to cutting-edge groundbreaking research therapy. Our specialists are bound laulima together by a deep, shared sense of teamwork and compassion including our tireless effort dedicated to advance the understanding of epilepsy and collaborating with other world-class leaders in the epilepsy field in developing better treatments for our patients.
At the center, our philosophy isn’t simply “no seizures, no side effects”; it is a balance that allows children and adults with epilepsy to lead full, high-quality lives as our Ohana.
