Vagus nerve stimulation (VNS) prevents seizures by sending regular, mild pulses of electrical energy to the brain via the vagus nerve. Consider it a “pacemaker for your brain.” After the successful placement of your VNS device, Dr. Hashwani will adjust the strength and timing of the stimulation or impulses according to your needs. The settings can be programmed and changed by placing a wand over the generator on the left side of the chest. This wand connects to a handheld computer.
