About this doctor:

Dr. George Nune completed his undergraduate studies at UC Berkeley where he majored in Cognitive Science and Molecular and Cell Biology. Following this, he obtained his medical degree from the Feinberg School of Medicine at Northwestern University. He went on to complete residency in Neurology as well as fellowship training in Epilepsy and Neurophysiology at the Stanford University Medical Center before joining USC as an Assistant Professor of Clinical Neurology. His research interests focus on neuromodulation devices in the treatment of epilepsy, epilepsy surgery, and finding better ways measure the impact of epilepsy in patient’s lives.

My goal is to help patients with epilepsy and other neurological disorders overcome their medical conditions and achieve their life goals. Epilepsy is a devastating disease in that it is not simply a medical illness but affects the lives of patients and their loved ones in a wide variety of ways. While advances in medical science have made many neurologic conditions treatable and in some cases curable, it is not sufficient to treat just the disease. One must focus on the whole person. Furthermore, medications are just one aspect of treatment, which may include lifestyle modification, dietary therapy, and medical devices. In order to properly care for a patient, I believe a physician has to get to know their patient’s values, goals, and their sources of social support in the form of friends, family, and community. In this way, treatments can be targeted to each person’s specific needs and desires.
