About Mohankumar Kurukumbi, MD

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

He has been an epileptologist with Inova Medical Group for 5 years. His interest in epilepsy stems from a passion to help people with seizures gain control and achieve a better quality of life with advanced epilepsy treatment options. He believes and practices avoiding overtreating and undertreating epilepsy.

Dr. Kurukumbi is proud of the quality of care offered by Inova's Comprehensive Epilepsy Program and that it has achieved status as a NAEC Level four center. The program offers several services including epilepsy monitoring units, epilepsy surgery, subdural electrode placement, vagus nerve stimulation (VNS), responsive nerve stimulation (Neuropace) and newer anti-epileptic drugs to all eligible patents.

Beginning in 2019, the Inova Epilepsy center started "Laser Surgery" for the patients with refractory epilepsy.

Dr. Kurukumbi recommends that all epilepsy/seizure patients take advantage of the 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.
