To meet a growing need in our region, Cheyenne Regional Medical Center and Wyoming Neurology have joined together to open an Epilepsy Center at the hospital.
The new center has been designated by the National Association of Epilepsy Centers as a Level 3 center, which means it can provide neuro-diagnostic evaluations and basic medical, neuropsychological and psychosocial services. However, the center does not perform complex surgeries
Epilepsy affects about 2 million people in the U.S. According to statistics, one-third of people with epilepsy or who have had seizures have not seen a neurologist in the past year.
In our area, traveling to Denver has possibly deterred some from getting tested. With this new center, people will have easier access.
If you'd like more information call Wyoming Neurology at 307-432-0335.
