Dr. Mohan Kurukumbi is board certified in neurology and clinical neurophysiology (epilepsy). He is the Medical Director of the Inova Epilepsy Center at Inova Fairfax Hospital.

He has been an epileptologist with Inova Neurology for more than five years.

The program offers several services including epilepsy monitoring units, epilepsy rsection surgery, subdural electrode placement, vagus nerve stimulation (VNS), responsive nerve stimulation (Neuropace), deep brain stimulation ( DBS) surgery and newer anti-epileptic drugs to all eligible patents. The Inova Epilepsy Center also offers the latest advanced "laser surgery," also known as ablation surgery, for qualifying epilepsy patients.

Dr. Kurukumbi recommends that all types of epilepsy/seizure patients from new onset seizures to complicated intractable seizures take advantage of the one stop comprehensive epilepsy care at Inova.

Dr. Kurukumbi's other areas of interest are general neurology, neuropathy, headache, stroke, neuromuscular disorders, myasthenia gravis, neurosarcoidosis and concussion.
