MEGIN Spotlight – Dr. Sarah Weatherspoon, Pediatric Neurologist at Le Bonheur Children’s Hospital

It was a pleasure welcoming our guest Dr. Sarah Weatherspoon to the Spotlight. Dr. Weatherspoon is a Pediatric Neurologist at Le Bonheur Children’s Hospital.
In this interview, Dr. Weatherspoon discusses how she discovered MEG technology, the importance of finding a MEG center for her first attending position, and how the technology is incorporated into the workflow at the EMU today.
Dr. Weatherspoon explains why using MEG is always high on her priority list, and shares one patient’s incredible epilepsy journey where MEG was instrumental in guiding the hospital team. This patient was previously not considered a surgical candidate but with the data from a MEG scan and the following surgery, the patient has gone from hundreds of seizures a day to two and a half months seizure free.
