Adithya Sivaraju, MD, MHA, specializes in treating patients with epilepsy and a range of other neurological conditions, including stroke, immunologic disorders and infections. He is actively involved in researching the best approaches to epilepsy surgery and optimization of techniques used to evaluate the brain’s electrical activity. “It means a lot to us when we are able to finally do something about these problems,” he says. “Anytime we can make patients seizure-free through epilepsy surgery it is a remarkable feeling.”
An assistant professor of neurology at Yale School of Medicine, Dr. Sivaraju says he joined the faculty because he was drawn to what he saw as an environment “rich in the exchange of knowledge and opportunities for research collaboration.”
He is determined to continue searching for the cause of seizures and how to best treat them. “With that question left unanswered, there is never a dull moment or lack of motivation to keep working at it and finding answers,” he says.
