Patient Story

Epilepsy Surgery | Morgan's Story

Daily epileptic seizures were severely affecting Morgan’s quality of life as a teenager in middle school. Her family turned to pediatric neurosurgeon Shenandoah “Dody” Robinson at Johns Hopkins. The team located the spot in Morgan’s brain where the seizures were originating, and laser ablation surgery removed the lesion, leaving her seizure-free.
