Med School Café - Expert Advice for the Community

Dr. W. George Rusyniak, associate professor of neurosurgery at the University of South Alabama College of Medicine and a neurosurgeon with USA Physicians Group, presented the March Med School Café lecture, “Surgical Treatment of Epilepsy."

During the talk, Dr. Rusyniak discussed epilepsy, a brain disorder in which a person has repeated seizures over time. He also explained available epilepsy treatments, including epilepsy surgery, an operation on the brain that can control seizures and ultimately improve the patient’s quality of life.

Dr. Rusyniak is part of an epilepsy team at USA. The comprehensive epilepsy program provides unique and highly specialized care with state-of-the-art technology for patients with epilepsy and other neurological conditions.
