How Neurostimulation Devices for Epilepsy Differ: RNS vs. VNS and DBS

Key Takeaways

  • Neurostimulators treat focal seizures with electrical pulses when medications aren’t enough and removing or destroying brain tissue may cause harm.
  • You and your doctors can choose from among three approved options, with key differences in seizure targeting and data recording.
  • The RNS System is the only neurostimulator that provides therapy when it’s needed, lets doctors view your data online, and comes without long-lasting stimulation side effects.

*Every person’s seizures are different and individual results will vary
