Duke Health contracts with most major health insurance carriers and transplant networks, including the ones listed below. Before scheduling your appointment, we strongly recommend you contact your insurance company to verify that the Duke Health location or provider you plan to visit is included in your network. Your insurance company will also be able to inform you of any co-payments, co–insurances, or deductibles that will be your responsibility. If you proceed in scheduling an appointment and your health insurance benefits do not participate with Duke, your out of pocket liability may be higher. We will contact you regarding your coverage and patient liability. If you are uninsured, learn more about our financial assistance policy.
Saurabh R. Sinha, MD, PhD
I am a neurologist at Duke and specialize in epilepsy. I see people who have seizures and are trying to figure what is causing them, or patients who have been diagnosed with epilepsy and have seizures that are hard to control. There are many options for managing epilepsy, including tools for diagnosis, medication, implantable devices, and epilepsy surgery. There are also things with epilepsy that need to be managed and treated, in addition to seizures, such as depression, cognitive problems, or physical issues from seizures or side effects. Since there are so many options, only a place that has multiple specialists in many areas who come together and look at a case can offer those options. Here at Duke, every week we have a meeting with neurosurgeons, neuropsychologists, EEG techs, neurologists, and pediatric neurologists. We look at individual cases and decide what the best approach is for a given patient.
Clinical Focus and Research
My research centers on patients with intractable seizures, specifically surgical approaches and new medical treatments. I am also interested in seizures in critically ill patients.
