Focusing on You: Andres M. Kanner, M.D.

Posted: 03.29.2016

In the March 29th segment of “Focusing on You: Breakthroughs in Precision Medicine,” Andres Kanner, M.D., discusses the latest advances in successful epilepsy treatment including the use of lasers, which are less invasive and offer rapid recover, to target the part of the brain where seizures originate, and a computer chip that is programmed to detect abnormal brain activity that precedes a seizure and responds with brief electrical stimulation that disrupts the activity and normalizes brainwaves often before seizure symptoms begin.

Tune in every Tuesday on CBS4 during the noon, 5, and 6 pm newscasts to learn more about precision medicine and other advancements available at UHealth.
