Vagus Nerve Stimulator (VNS) Clinic
Dr. Barry Hendin and Dr. Todd Levine are in charge of the VNS clinic
at Phoenix Neurological Associates. Through the VNS Clinic, they are
responsible for treating adults with medically intractable seizures who
have undergone VNS implantation. Through the VNS Clinic, patients undergo
rigorous evaluation to ensure that their seizures are being properly
controlled through VNS and AED treatment. Following implantation, the
patient is followed regularly in the VNS Clinic for optimizing seizure
control by manipulating device settings, and when possible, weaning medications.
VNS clinic days are usually every 3 months. Nicole Hank is the clinic's
VNS specialist and may be contacted with questions.
