“SEIZURE, SEIZURE, SEIZURE. I THOUGHT THEY’D NEVER STOP. UNTIL THE HOSPITAL FOUND THE SOURCE OF THE SEIZURES AND ELIMINATED THEM. NOW IT’S LIFE, LIFE, LIFE.”
Sofia T. Amador experienced her first seizure at 10. With medication, the seizures were under control and eventually went away. Until she was 29. At that point they returned. With a vengeance. It was no surprise that she chose Overlook Medical Center. Overlook houses a Level 4 epilepsy center, one of the few in New Jersey. And it's the first and only place in the tri-state area that uses MEG technology solely for the treatment of patients. MEG technology is a non-invasive procedure that maps electrical activity in the brain to locate the source of seizures. With that information, brain surgery was successfully performed. And Sofia has been seizure-free ever since.
