Vagus Nerve Stimulation (VNS) Therapy® Information Night presented by LivaNova

  From the LivaNova website:

LivaNova is a global medical technology company built on decades of experience and a relentless commitment to improve the lives of patients around the world. As pioneers of the VNS (Vagus Nerve Stimulation) Therapy® System, we continue to advance medical device solutions for people affected by drug-resistant epilepsy and treatment-resistant depression. We are dedicated to helping create meaningful products and therapies that transform lives each and every day. 

  

During this presentation, we will discuss the treatment options for people living with drug-resistant epilepsy that are highlighted in the Ontario Epilepsy Guidelines, with a main focus on Vagus Nerve Stimulation (VNS) Therapy®. We will discuss what VNS Therapy® is, how VNS Therapy® works, and who candidates for VNS Therapy® are, while also discussing some of the benefits that people with VNS Therapy® may experience. There will be plenty of time for discussion and questions, as well. The purpose of this presentation is to provide patient-focused education on VNS Therapy®, and to ensure that people living with epilepsy are aware of the Ontario Epilepsy Guidelines and the treatment options listed in the Ontario Epilepsy Guidelines, so they can access the care they deserve.
