Ask Stanford Medicine: Dr. Josef Parvizi discusses drug-resistant epilepsy

As part of the Stanford School of Medicine's Ask Stanford Med series, Stanford neurologist Dr. Joseph Parvizi will be responding to questions on the subject of drug resistant epilepsy, and a surgical procedure to help treat the devastating condition. Dr. Parvizi, MD, PhD, is the director of the Stanford Program for Drug-Resistant Epilepsies. Dr. Parvizi will be taking questions both via twitter, or via the School of Medicine's Scope blog. Questions will be collected until Wednesday (June 19) at 5 PM Pacific Time. Both neuroscientists and members of the general public are encouraged to ask a question, and to join the conversation at the Scope blog.
