PATIENT CONNECTION

Amanda’s Story

Amanda Mette, a 28-year-old University of Cincinnati graduate, had problems with seizures. After two antiepileptic drugs failed to control her symptoms, she underwent testing to see whether she was a candidate for epilepsy surgery. She was, and the results have been something to celebrate. She now has a new lease on life thanks to her UC Health care team.
