Neurosurgeon Matthew Smyth interviewed on new device to help epilepsy patients

A new device senses the onset of seizures in the brains of people with epilepsy and fires stimulant therapy. The device is used for medication-resistant epilepsy, and St. Louis Children's Hospital is the only hospital in Missouri to offer the device.

 Washington University neurosurgeon Matthew Smyth, MD, talks with KPLR-TV's Christine Buck on epilepsy and use of the device. See interview.
