"Our faculty physicians and scientists are constantly striving to discover new solutions to the most complex diseases, conditions and disorders," said Carmen A. Puliafito, M.D., MBA, dean of the Keck School of Medicine of USC. "The USC Center for Neurorestoration is a prime example of that pioneering approach — proposing a fundamental departure from current best practices in neurorehabilitation and bridging the gap between science and medicine."

One of the center's current projects includes improving upon the RNS system by testing different levels of electrical stimulation on brain samples in the lab to determine the most effective level for seizure prevention.

"Academic medical centers are centers of innovation and education that directly contribute to the medical breakthroughs that redefine health care," said Tom Jackiewicz, M.P.H., senior vice president and CEO of USC Health. "Dr. Charles Liu and Dr. Christi Heck are blazing a trail in neurological research and care that ultimately will change people's lives for the better. Keck Medicine of USC is proud to serve as a keystone for their efforts."

The RNS System is manufactured by NeuroPace Inc., of Mountain View, Calif. It will initially be made available to the 32 clinical trial sites where it was tested and then to other comprehensive epilepsy centers in the United States. The device is not yet covered by Medicare and private insurance, but its manufacturer expects it will be soon. The purchase cost of the full system is likely to range from $35,000 to $40,000, depending on the components selected, according to NeuroPace.
