Meet Dr. Kan DingNeurologist Specializing in Epilepsy in Dallas
For Kan Ding, M.D., treating patients with epilepsy is not just about treating the medical condition – it’s about treating the whole patient.
“We need to treat the patient as a whole person,” says Dr. Ding, who received advanced training in epilepsy and clinical neurophysiology at UT Southwestern. “Patients who come to an epileptologist like me for seizure control often also suffer from a lot of other complications. Our goal is to improve their quality of life as a whole.”
While she sees patients with all types and manifestations of epilepsy, Dr. Ding has special expertise evaluating patients with intractable epilepsy – that which cannot be treated with medication – and patients with post-traumatic epilepsy, or epilepsy that develops as a result of traumatic brain injury (TBI).
Dr. Ding is also committed to clinical research and works closely with other specialists at UT Southwestern to study better ways to diagnose, treat, and rehabilitate patients with epilepsy.
