Patient's 'last hope' email turns to life without seizures

October 24, 2012

"I will not waste my time switching doctors again, because I have already done that too many times. I guess this is my last cry for help."

That's how Maggie Cannon ended a long email to Deepak Madhavan, M.D., medical director of The Nebraska Medical Center Epilepsy Program and assistant professor of neurological sciences at UNMC.

She did not know Dr. Madhavan, but after eight years of seizures and repeated appointments with neurologists all over Omaha, Cannon felt like she was out of options.

Watch the video to learn how Dr. Madhavan and the health care team helped Cannon become seizure free.
