What does VNS Therapy involve?

VNS Therapy is delivered through a device that sends mild pulses to the vagus nerve at regular intervals throughout the day in an effort to stop seizures before they start.

An additional dose of therapy may stop or shorten your seizure, decrease its intensity and shorten your recovery time.

VNS Therapy includes a short outpatient procedure which takes about an hour.
