PropertyValue
keywords Epilepsy
keywords Seizure Disorders
overview Naoum Issa, MD, PhD is a neurologist specializing in the treatment of epilepsy. He works closely with patients to control their seizures and is passionate about offering advanced options for epilepsy that is resistant to anti-seizure medications. Dr. Issa is the director of epilepsy research at the University of Chicago. His research focuses on detecting and diagnosing neurologic disorders using painless, electrophysiological techniques. He and his co-workers are developing ways to identify seizure footprints in deep brain structures without having to implant electrodes. Through collaborations with neuromuscular specialists, he is applying some of the same techniques used for seizure diagnosis to detect other neurological disorders like ALS. Dr. Issa has published over 40 scientific papers and book chapters, is an associate editor for epilepsy at BMC-Neurology, and is a reviewer for multiple neurology and neuroscience journals. His work has appeared in journals such as Neurology, Journal of Neuroscience, Nature Protocols, and Neuron. Dr. Issa directs the preclinical neurology education at the Pritzker School of Medicine and has been recognized for excellence in teaching with the L.D.H. Wood Preclerkship Teaching Award, the Arnold P. Gold Foundation Humanism and Excellence in Teaching Award, and he was a faculty honoree of the Alpha Omega Alpha Honor Medical Society for clinical teaching.
