Epilepsy Surgery Patient Stories
Daily epileptic seizures were severely affecting Morgan’s quality of life as a teenager in middle school. When her family learned she would need surgery for her epilepsy, they turned to pediatric neurosurgeon Shenandoah “Dody” Robinson at Johns Hopkins. Once the precise location in Morgan’s brain where the seizures were originating was located through imaging, laser ablation surgery was performed, leaving her seizure-free.
