NOTE: Please note that Dr. Andrade splits her time between clinical work (seeing patients), teaching and research in order to provide cutting-edge, world-class patient care in her areas of expertise. Due to the research component, there are some weeks over the year where no clinics are held. We do have nurse practitioners and a fellow assisting and covering for Dr. Andrade and they can provide some support and refills for prescriptions.
The KNC Epilepsy Genetics Clinic specializes in the diagnosis and management of genetically determined epilepsies (even if after initial investigation the culprit gene(s) could not be determined) and familial epilepsies. The approach involves comprehensive testing to identify the root cause and the development of a treatment plan that may include medication, neuromodulation, epilepsy-specific diet treatment, or surgical resection of the affected area. Patients who are seen by Dr. Andrade's group have access to cutting-edge genetic research that may help determine the cause of their epilepsy and inform the best care plan.
