Dr. discussing SUDEP

What is SUDEP?

Although this subject can be a difficult one, Dr. Saleem Malik discusses SUDEP (sudden unexpected death in epilepsy), which occurs when patients with seizures pass away suddenly and no other cause of death can be found. We recommend watching this video to learn about the risk factors for epilepsy patients and the precautions that may help reduce the risk of SUDEP.

We’re here to help.

If your child has been diagnosed, you probably have lots of questions. We can help. If you would like to schedule an appointment, refer a patient or speak to our staff, please call our offices at 682-885-2500.
