Houston man free of epileptic seizures months after surgery

HOUSTON (December05, 2017)

Imagine going about your life one minute and then losing all control in the next minute. It's the reality for the more than three million Americans the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention says are living with epilepsy. It's also a reality Houstonian James Burke knows all too well. Then a year after ABC13 met James, there was a terrible accident that would change him forever. A seizure had knocked out Burke, his t-shirt catching fire on his gas stove. Burke moved back home to Houston but his seizures didn't stop while he was in recovery. Unwilling to give up on himself, Burke followed the suggestion of someone he met during an event for Memorial Hermann Hospital, landing in the capable hands of Dr. Nitin Tandon, director of the Epilepsy Surgery Program at the Mischer Neuroscience Institute at Memorial Hermann-Texas Medical Center and McGovern Medical School at UTHealth.
