Robert C. Knowlton


Neurologist and epilepsy specialist
Fanatic for seizure localization

Dr. Robert Knowlton is a neurologist who specializes in diagnosing complex cases of epilepsy, such as those with no clear origin found using standard tests. In his clinical practice, Knowlton combines a variety of advanced diagnostic tests to pinpoint the source of seizures in the brain. He is especially interested in identifying patients who could successfully be treated with surgery and given a permanent option for a life free from seizures.

Knowlton's research focuses on neuroimaging and clinical decision making in the surgical treatment of seizure disorders and brain tumors.

My job is one big privilege. I learn more from my patients than from any other experience in my work or study. I can only hope that what my patients receive is close to the same.

    I felt that Dr. Knowlton listened carefully to my medical issues and concerns. Before seeing Dr. Knowlton I felt discouraged about any medical improvement but after our visit I felt more hopeful. I believe Dr. Knowlton will try to find the source of my problem. I am grateful that he is helping me.
