The research of Joseph I. Sirven, M.D., pertains to all facets of the diagnosis and management of seizures and epilepsy. Dr. Sirven focuses mostly on drug-resistant epilepsy, particularly surgical management, as well as the use of devices for treating epilepsy. Managing seizure emergencies such as status epilepticus, or preventing seizure clusters, is of particular interest to him.
A common clinical goal for patients with epilepsy is to have a good to excellent quality of life with seizures either well controlled or predictable. As such, Dr. Sirven's research aims to discover methods that completely control seizures or to find ways for patients to experience a quality of life in which seizures become less of an issue. His research focuses on devices designed either to predict seizures or to control them. He also explores ways to lessen the stigma of seizures.
