Vagal Nerve Stimulation (VNS)

St. Mary's Neurology offers Vagal Nerve Stimulation (VNS) services to patients.

VNS means vagal nerve stimulation, which is a technological therapy for patients who have uncontrolled seizures.  Our office has the ability to adjust and manage a device once it has been implanted by a surgeon.  Dr. Kavilaveettil will assess epilepsy patients and after assessment, if it is determined that the patient is a candidate for VNS, she will then refer the patient to the appropriate surgeon.
