    Question submitted during Session II of The Canine Epilepsy Summit:

    "Does NC State perform the VNS surgery? What % of the (seizure) reduction was seen?"

    - Answer provided by Dr. Karen Muñana:

    NC State has not performed the VNS surgery for many years - due to the cost and availability of the device. But we are considering offering this as a treatment option again.
