William Tatum, D.O., is a neurologist subspecializing in the field of epilepsy and working with patients with recurrent seizures. My research interests reside in the medical and surgical treatment of patients with drug-resistant epilepsy focusing on epilepsy surgery and neuromodulation. Of interest are seizure semiology and behavioral aspects, including symptoms of seizures and the application of video-EEG monitoring. In addition, my primary area of research and interest is focused on all forms of EEG recording and clinical neurophysiology.
Dr. Tatum's clinical research involving intraoperative electrocorticography has resulted in a patented recording device and an additional disclosure that has published results. For neurological and neurosurgical treatment of patients with brain tumor-related epilepsy, these results show that using a noncommercially available specialized recording technique yields improved outcomes. Additionally, Dr. Tatum and his colleagues have demonstrated that experts using smartphone video analysis can differentiate between epileptic and nonepileptic seizures with a high level of accuracy in the outpatient clinical setting.
